A cathedral to geekery, the exposed brickwork, big old oak tables and stone floors make this Apple’s most inviting store (it is also the world’s biggest). There are separate rooms – set out over three storeys – devoted to each product line. And it’s the world’s first Apple store to feature a Start Up Room where staff will help set up your new iPad, iPhone, iPod or Mac, or transfer files from your old computer to your new one – all for free. This is the kind of futuristic store you dreamed about as a kid. If you were a nerdy kid.

I'm not a nerdy geeky type, despite what others think! But when I visit any Apple Store I'm like a kid in a candy shop. This place is huge, even when rammed with people it still feels spacious and airy. Whether you're there just to browse and look at all the tech that you aspire to own, or there to purchase. Everywhere you turn, you are encouraged to touch and play, what better way to engage your customers by inviting them to experience the technology first hand. The staff are incredibly knowledgeable, extremely helpful without any hard sell and appear to be the most fulfilled sales staff I've experienced, how do they keep them so enthused? As a customer I always leave, with or without a purchase, feeling completely serviced, never over or undersold, just right! Love 'em or hate 'em, Apple do get many things right, the stores are a fantastic example of retail engagement.

This review is for the Apple Store near Oxford Street. This place is huge! So much space to move around. So much space to play with all the latest gadgets that I really can't afford. It is like Charlie and the Chocolate factory for Apple fans. The staff are super friendly and knowledgeable. They seem to know everything that you need to know about Apple products. Or, at the very least, be able to quickly call someone over to tell you. The price is the last thing to be mentioned. But, as it is mentioned with a smile, the price does not seem that bad.
