Both stores now have their respective webpages up, announcing grand openings.
Apple University Village
The new retail outlet at the open air University Village mall in Seattle is scheduled to officially open to the public at 9:30am local time on Saturday, June 30. The new location will replace Apple’s existing store there that it has occupied since 2003.
According to web reports, the retail outlet will incorporate Apple’s next-generation retail design and occupy about 14,000 square feet of a former parking, of which 8,000 square feet will be a specialized sales floor and areas dedicated to Today at Apple sessions.
Apple Palo Alto
The new store in Palo Alto, California, located on the 340 University Avenue, is scheduled to open its doors to customers at 10am local time on Sunday, June 30.
The visually stunning store closed for renovations back in May.
Apple Stores have always served a bigger purpose than just selling. That said, it’s encouraging that the company is continuing to spare no expense investing in its retail expansion.
Apple now has over 500 retail locations worldwide.
