An iconic six-storey Waterstones in Birmingham, the country‘s second largest and most populous city, is to be replaced by an Apple store.  

The tech giant‘s plans come just one week after Birmingham opened its Grand Central shopping mall, and the doors to a flagship John Lewis branch.  

The deal is currently unconfirmed, although the Birmingham Mail understands that Apple, Waterstones and Horton‘s Estate, the building‘s owner, have agreed the terms.
