Did you hear? Apparently, Apple has kicked off the process of recruiting staff members for their upcoming retail store in Malaysia! In case you didn’t know, the rumours of the first-ever Apple Store in Malaysia first emerged earlier this week.
Twitter user Fazli Halim uploaded a picture on the social media platform depicting, what appears to be, work being done at the Tun Razak Exchange complex, or TRX for short. The photo posted shows staff working on a brightly lit Apple logo, while surrounded by scaffolding.
