Apple CEO Tim Cook on Thursday opened the second official Apple Store in India. The second store is located in Select Citywalk Mall in Saket, Delhi, hence it is called Apple Saket Store.

Here are five things to know about the Apple Saket store.

The Saket store, on the other hand, has an area of 8,417.83 sq ft, according to a report by CRE Matrix. This is mainly because it is inside a mall.

The store has over 70 highly skilled retail employees who come from 18 states. They may collectively speak more than 15 languages.

Apple is reported to be paying a rent of Rs 40 lakh per month to keep the Saket store operational. This is similar to the 43 lakh per month rent that Apple has to pay for the BKC store despite its massive size.
The Saket store is on a lease agreement with Select Infra for 10 years. According to Moneycontrol, Apple has the option to renew the lease for another 5 years, provided it gives six months notice in advance.
