Apple has fan-base all over the world. Even in those countries where its stores are not there. For example, let us take a look at Netherlands. So far there is no Apple store in Netherlands. However, the popularity of Apple products in Netherlands is so much that they sell like hot cakes.
Probably, this is the reason behind speculations that Apple might be interested in expanding themselves in Netherlands.
Some bloggers in the Netherlands have witnessed the construction of a new Apple Store on the Leidseplein in Amsterdam. They could witness it because of a windstorm. The wind blew away part of the barriers around the new store, and Apple fans in the city quickly took advantage by clicking some pictures.
According to iPhoneclub.nl, the store is expected to open next month. Some bloggers are speculating that Saturday, 18 February 2012 might be the opening date. That speculation is based on finding out that a company that will take care of the building cleaning is expected to start work at the site in mid-February, and that training of employees has been scheduled.
Just like the Apple Store at the Louvre in Paris, the Leidseplein Apple Store has a pyramidal glass roof. A circular glass staircase will connect the two floors of the store. This store is going to be the first Apple Store in the Netherlands.
