Melburnians how they feel about the Apple ‘global flagship store’ that is set to open in Federation Square in 2020.
“Probably need a password to get in.” Andrew Young
“Put it in Docklands or Southbank but not Federation Square!” Brendan Dombrowsky
“That’s like slapping a billboard on the Sydney Opera House. What a disgrace.” Brodie Mitchell
“Why a shop of any kind is opening in a community space is incomprehensible. Especially when protests and welcomes to country are occurring against an Apple background.” Cathy Hunt
“Not a fan of Apple presents imelbourne. Leave Melbourne to grow organically, as dictated by people’s needs, not a corporation’s.” Shannon Loughnane
“Knocking down a public building to put in a shop is cultural vandalism.” John Nicholas
“Yay! Can’t wait!” Reece Joel Gock
