Apple UK's Bullring store to open for Tiger

Brum deal

Apple's second UK High Street store will open its doors next week, timing the popping of the portals to coincide with the official release of Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger.

The store, in Birmingham's rebuilt Bullring Shopping Centre, will open at 6PM on Friday, 29 April. It's on Level 3 of Upper Mall West.

To tempt shoppers and Mac fans to swing by, Apple is offering a Digital Lifestyle Collection prize draw. There's a 20in-screen iMac up for grabs with a stack of peripherals, together worth £2,145.

Scratchcards will be handed out too, offering visitors the chance to win notebooks, iPods and other prizes.

And the first 1,500 folk through the door will take home a commemorative T-shirt, Apple said.

Apple opened its first UK store, in London's Regent Street, last December. The opening drew round-the-block crowds. The Mac maker is preparing to open a third shop, in the Bluewater shopping centre, Kent. No date has been given for its opening. ®
