SINGAPORE: Apple will be opening its first store in Singapore on May 27.

According to the consumer tech giant's website, its Apple Orchard Road store at Knightsbridge Mall will open at 10am that day, with the daily operating hours stated as 10am to 10pm, Monday to Sunday.

The website also stated a series of programmes scheduled at the store, including an acoustic performance by Singapore Idol 3 winner Sezairi Sezali on the store's opening day. A photo walk with local photographer Aik Beng Chia, has also been scheduled for the following day.

Hoardings around the outlet came down past midnight on May 22, showing off Apple's signature all-glass storefront.
