A number of new jobs have been announced this morning with a new store set to open in Foyleside next month.

Apple Premium Reseller, ‘iConnect’ has just announced the opening of its first Northern Ireland store in Derry, with the creation of ten Retail jobs. The store is set to open on Saturday, September 20.

The new store aims to offer shoppers in the North West the opportunity to learn and experience Apple’s innovative products and solutions in their local environment. iConnect will offer the complete range of Mac, iPad, iPhone and iPod along with a wide range of accessories.

“We’re very excited to open a new Apple Premium Reseller store in Foyleside Shopping Centre which will serve as our Head Office in Northern Ireland.” said John McEvoy, Strabane native and Director of iConnect. “We will be placing strong emphasis on providing customers with exceptional levels of service, outstanding educational platforms and an enhanced retail experience which we hope will further increase awareness and loyalty to the Apple brand as we move forward.”

iConnect’s hands-on approach provides customers with an opportunity to test drive the full range of products and Apple-trained staff can offer impartial advice to both consumer and professional customers. They also offer regular in-store demonstrations and training to help customers get the most from their purchases.

The company launched its European delivery last year when it opened its first store in Whitewater Shopping Centre, Co. Kildare in September and the second store in Liffey Valley, Dublin, in November. The Derry store - Northern Ireland’s first - is set to transform the way people buy technology in the North – with local accessibility, training and education offered to all customers.

An iConnect spokesperson said: “Experts will be available to help customers learn all about the latest products from Apple including the iPhone 5s, the first 64bit Phone with the worlds most advance Mobile OS, iPhone 5c, the most colourful iPhone yet, iPad Air, the dramatically thinner, lighter and most powerful iPad and the iPad mini now with razor sharp Retina quality. Customers can get hands on with the updated MacBook Pro with Retina display and OS X Mavericks, the world’s most advanced desktop operating system, now available for free. They can try out the next generation iWork and iLife apps, which come free with the purchase of every new Mac or iOS device.

As well as our Sales element, iConnect are delighted to provide training, support and repair services under the one roof. Business and residential customers can now find all the support they need right in the centre of Derry,”
