The brand new store is nearly twice the size of the original Futureworld showroom and is designed to be the new hub for Sri Lankan consumers to discover Apple products and services, get support and participate in exciting promotions. 

Colombo has an incredible energy and has long been a destination for the latest IT gadgets and great brands and the Futureworld Apple store will be right at the centre of this brand revolution. The team at the store is looking forward to bringing Apple’s unique point of view and attitude to the city. The focus of the brand has shifted from pure sales generation to creating a sense of community and connection for Apple consumers which ultimately drives brand loyalty.

Futureworld also hopes to engage younger audiences with innovative digital experiences and promotions that will captivate this target group. The Apple brand is extremely popular among young millennial customers and the new Futureworld store will engage this group by providing new products and trends, and will be their ‘hangout’ for connecting with friends physically or virtually, while enjoying the brand experience.

Customers also can get all their Apple products repaired or checked at the well-equipped Futureworld Apple Service Centre, supported by experienced ‘factory trained’ professionals providing exceptional after sales support and preventive maintenance services. Futureworld also provides one-on-one training to individuals and organisations.
