Mercury News reports that Apple is experimenting with a new store type in Palo Alto that is a few meters apart from its store in 451 University Avenue. The new store will include skylight, trees and “inviting day-lit interior that is designed to dissolve the boundary between exterior and interior to connect the activity on the street and within the store,”
The work will begin ‘any day now’ and Apple will use all the experience it has gathered from its Palo Alto store and all its stores from all around the world and put it all into this new store.
Here is what Apple said in a statement –
“Our Palo Alto store was one of our first retail stores when we opened it nearly a decade ago and it’s been incredibly popular.
We are planning a beautiful new store just a few steps away, building on everything we’ve learned from our customers in Palo Alto and around the world.”
