For the guy-geek in me, this place is awesome. Lots of gadgets to look at. If only I had more money. Staff really know there stuff so I'd recommend a visit if you're thinking of buying an ipod, mac etc.
One of the more understated Apple stores I have seen, this is located about halfway up Buchanan St, on your left if you face Buchanan Galleries. As would be expected from an Apple store, there are lots of gadgets to play with, lots of staff to ask questions of and plenty of excited teenagers walking about. Presentation is perfect, as always. The staff themselves are very friendly and the helpdesk upstairs is an excellent source of advice, though you will need to make a booking.
When i walked in i made up my mind as soon as i seen the glass staircase… wow! Really cheery and helpful staff although it is very expensive. It is worth it because my mac has not crashed once since i had it and the staff have helped me get to grips with the changes. Thanks Mum and Dad lol
If you love all things Apple and iPod related the place to go! A beautiful old converted building as great to look at from the outside as the inside being one of the funkiest interior design in a shop I have witnessed!
They cater for all your iPod and Apple computer needs at the higher end of the price scale, as you would imagine.
Their genius bar is great, I have been to use their service a couple of times due to problems with my iPod and they were a great help and could answer any questions I had.
Appointments for the bar can even be booked online in advance though the Apple website so you don’t have to wait to long in queue when you get there. Great!
I may be biast because I’m more a pc person than a mac person, the store looks fantastic but there really isn’t too much to see, they space things out really well that it looks a lot but when you really look around you find that most of the numbers are really just different colours of the same product.
I’ve never used their genius bar so cannot comment on it, but they do have a nice selection of mac software.
Its a good place to go if you want computer eye candy.
Fan-static Shop and great sales peoples, as I have an apple lap top, which it died on me… Wails….
So I went to the Apple store, and they have told me to chuck it in the bin… I said no, I wanna to keep it, so they have offered me several options, to fix it. but they were reasonable, and gave me loads of information.
Even they have took other laptop, to give me a demo, and even lets me play and fiddle around with the products before deciding on which to buy…
Even they have offered me a special financing options on how to pay for the new laptop, and they all were very helpful.
So I rate this store very good customer service and I hope they will carry on…
Mind you their store are TOTALLY hard to find in the buchanan street, as I have walked up and down the street practically three times, until I finally found it….! I dont blame them, as I blame it on the ancient building, as of keeping the old building as you cannot convert it.. so the Apple have placed their Logo inside their arch outside the building… So when you are walking up to the Buchanan Street… you have to lean your head to the left, and keep eye on the arch with a apple, then you will find the apple store eventually!!!
Inside the layouts are all quirky and very sleek, apple design styles…. and I do love their Staff’s Name tags… I want one of them!! Haha!
The apple store is an experience as much as a shop, and since that is what they are clearly aiming for, then it is a total success. Everything is beautifully laid out, and the atmosphere is very pleasant - there is no hard sell unlike some chains. Staff are super helpful and friendly, and don’t pretend to know the answers when they don’t. It is a lovely building, and great fun to browse, even if you are not in a position to buy. All in all, a great addition to Glasgow shops. The only problem I can see is that I am not sure it is actually doing all that much business.
New establishment based in the middle of the city centre cool shop with good staff and a fun layout in the store, apple products are hugely overpriced but with that comes great customer care, my mate broke his iphone took it into the apple store they replaced it with a brand new one there and then instore very helpfull
A computer store where the staff actually know a thing or two! They’re trained to actually find the best item for you (not just the most expensive) although this does mean they get a little confused when you know exactly what you’re looking for. And as drgrohl said when they’re stumped they’ll google and not just make up random answers (which although amusing is not helpful).
It’s beautifully laid out and is nice just to browse through. I love that they offer email receipts. I also went in to buy when I was pushed for time once and the staff went out of their way to help me out.
A great location and has workshops for people of all ages and levels of computing knowledge.
Staff are friendly although I was quite surprised that a guy at the Genius Bar couldn’t answer what I thought was a simple answer and ended up googling message boards for the answer.
They take American Express, a plus for me. When paying you will be offered an email receipt to save on paper - a lot handier to find for later and good for the planet.
I love the apple store in Glasgow, lovely building, with groovy staircase, and loads of opportunity to play with the latest gadgets. The staff are very friendly and are happy to answer any questions you may have.
The Apple store is unlike most other computer shops in that the staff know what they’re talking about and they will listen to your requirements and give you decent advice. Then you can actually use the stuff, pick-up the hardware and feel the build quality, try out different applications, play around with the operating system, listen to music or watch video.
They also offer various in-store services that are probably best booked online before you go into the branch: you can book time in with a personal shopper for a 1-to-1 to discuss your requirements and have them talk through things and you can take hardware into the branch to have it serviced or repaired.
They also run various courses to instruct users on how to get the most out of their hardware and software.
Even if your not buying anything it’s a good shop to go into as there are lots of things to play with, or it’s worth popping in to check out all that funky glass staircase stuff.
As an Apple enthusiast this is very heaven for me. Hands on examples of all the latest Apple kit, if you can wait till the geeks have had a go. (It’s a well known fact that every other person interested in computers is a geek, while you yourself are an enthusiast).
Seriously though, this is the place to try out Apple gear, if you’re interested in buying. Knowledgeable staff to help out too.
They run some pretty good workshops on different software applications, and have a really good tech department for repairs and upgrades, etc.
If you’re not an Apple user, pop in and see what you’re missing or even just to play with an iPhone, though I have a feeling it might be Mac overkill for the uninitiated.
