  • Ginza Apple Store Called Off Event and Alerted Police after Receiving a Bomb Threat


    The Ginza Apple Store in Tokyo was recently forced to cancel one of its events this past weekend following the delivery of an anonymous letter that threatened a bombing unless the event was called off. The event was originally supposed to start at 2 in the afternoon and featured popular guests such as director Isao Yukisada.

    The letter was received around roughly 11:00am but Apple didnít hesitate to cancel the event. The store even went as far as closing the store for an hour and calling the police to ensure the safety of consumers as well as its staff. A search of the outlet didnít find any explosives but the local police are continuing their investigation under the assumption that it was a deliberate obstruction of business. The Ginza store ended up holding another event on Monday as part of Appleís Hour of Code series. The speaker was LoiLo CEO Koji Sugiyama who spoke about the companyís educational apps for kids.

    For those of you who didnít know, threats are actually a fairly rare occurrence at Apple Stores. This is the case even despite the size and international reach of the chain. When Apple Stores do get any threats, the Cupertino California company policy usually makes a quick decision to close the shops at first hint of danger to shoppers and employees, which is a good safety precaution.
