Many Malaysian Apple fans have been looking forward to the official Apple Store in Malaysia as we have seen neighbouring countries like Singapore and Thailand already have their official Apple store for quite some time.
Apple Store picture surfaces online
For now, those who’d like to purchase Apple products can only do so via the Apple website or through Apple-authorised resellers.
However, things might change soon after a photo of the first Apple store surfaces online following rumours of an Apple Store opening in the Tun Razak Exchange (TRX) at Jalan Tun Razak, Kuala Lumpur.
In a now-deleted picture shared by a user from Skyscraper City Forum, we can see that the construction workers are putting up a photo of the signature Apple logo!
Apple Malaysia is now hiring for various position
While officials from Apple did not confirm the news of the opening of the Apple Store in Malaysia, a job hiring post from Apple’s official website also started to make rounds on the internet.
In a hiring post, we can see that the California-based technology company is now doing massive hiring with over 11 positions available to apply for.
The available job positions include:
- Senior Managers
- Store Leaders
- Operation Experts
- Business Pros
- Business Experts
- Technical Specialists
- Creative staff
- Genius Bar staff.
Judging from the job requirement, Apple seems to focus more on the soft skills of the individuals as there aren’t any specific requirements for educational background or work experience.
It is also speculated that Apple has plans to physically expand its influence in Malaysia as the job positions are stated for ‘various locations within Malaysia’, indicating that there might be more than one Apple Store in Malaysia.
First outlet is rumoured to be at Tun Razak Exchange (TRX)
Rumours of the first Apple Store in Malaysia have been circulating as far back as 2021, when we saw news that Tun Razak Exchange (TRX) was in talks with Apple to open its first flagship store at the 70-acre development.
