Apple confirms Belgian Apple Store

American electronics giant Apple has confirmed rumours it would open a Belgian Apple Store in the brand-new shopping complex, Toison D'or, in Brussels.

Job openings

There have been rumours for months that the brand-new shopping center on the Guldenvlieslaan in Brussels would welcome an Apple Store, but only now has Apple confirmed those rumours to De Standaard. "We look forward to bringing the unique Apple retail experience to our Belgian customers", the American brand explained in an email to the newspaper. 


Today, the American company placed 14 new job openings on its website for retail positions in Belgium. The store should open its doors in the fall and will become Apple's first Apple Store in Belgium. Its products have been available in Belgium for some 30 years, but those were always sold through a local distributor like Switch.
