The retail locations give clients a chance to experience Apple products and deliver a standard of service that is typical of other international markets. Since these are Apple’s first stores in India, there has always been a lot of foot traffic, especially on the weekends. These stores also help in building good relations with customers. Customers often visit Apple stores to experience the latest products, and then purchase them from nearby resellers where they find discounts and financing options. Despite this, sales have been very high.

An industry executive said as per the outlet, “Apple won’t be satisfied with just two stores in a country as large as India. The question is not if, but when they will expand.”

The Indian market is the second-largest smartphone market in the world, and hence, Apple has been concentrating a lot on India. The company also plans on launching the Apple Vision Pro headset in India soon, and Apple stores at different locations would be a huge advantage. With their “Today at Apple” events, where professionals give tips on maximizing the use of Apple goods, the stores also contribute to the development of the brand.
