Apple’s first authorised store opens in Myanmar

Reading Time: 1 minute

Apple’s first authorised reseller in Myanmar, ‘mDrive’, will open an Apple store in a shopping center in Yangon, local media reported.

Until now, Apple products have entered the country through the grey market, especially from Singapore and Thailand.

Apple sells its products worldwide through Apple Official Stores, Apple Authorised Resellers (AAR), and Apple Premium Resellers (APR).

Official Apple stores are open in Tokyo, Beijing and Hong Kong in Asia. However, in Southeast Asia Apple usually appoints AAR and APR to reach its customers.

Apple has started with AAR to tap the Myanmar market. In the first Apple-authorised store by mDrive, Apple products except for iPhones and iPads will be available at the launch.

The store will be designed and decorated according to Apple standards. It will also sell iTune Gift Cards and offer free training to customers on how to make best use of Apple products.

But Apple products are readily available in Yangon. They are sold in numerous stores without authorised reseller status, alongside products from most other world-renowned electronic brands, often at prices well below the prices in neighbouring countries.
