‘Furious’ Apple quits Stockholm after city rejects ambitious flagship store

Tech giant Apple is severing its ties with the Swedish capital, after reportedly flying into a rage over the Stockholm City Council vetoing its plan to build a store at a popular historic park.

The new center-right coalition in city council decided to scrap initial plans to build a giant glass and stone store at Kungsträdgården park. The building currently occupied by a restaurant was purchased by Apple a few years ago for 129mn Swedish kronor (US$13.9mn) after the previous city government approved the project.

Apple was reportedly infuriated by the decision, as the company had already made several revisions to the project to better fit the historic location.
