The giant screens that form part of the new Apple Store design created by Jony Ive reportedly cost $1.5M each.
We got out first look at the screens at the opening of the Brussels store in Belgium, as well as a tour of a mockup in December. We reported last September that Memphis would be one of the first U.S. stores to get the new design, and that store finally opened at the weekend at 2031 West Street in Germantown – but Albany Crossgates, NY, got there first earlier this year …
Saturday, Apple will open its first Apple Store in the great state of Alaska which will be by far the most northernApple Store on the planet. It will be located on 320 West 5th Avenue (in the 5th Avenue Mall) in Anchorage, and doors open at 10 A.M.
You’d think this would make for an Apple Store in every state, but there are still seven (Arkansas, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming) without according to this map (thanks commenters).
Along with a store in Alaska, Apple will unveil four other stores worldwide Saturday:
Anchorage 5th Avenue Mall (Anchorage, Alaska)
Fashion Place (Murray, Utah)
Southland (Cheltenham, Victoria, Australia)
Conestoga: (Waterloo, Ontario, Canada)
I Gigli: (Florence, Italy)
