Farewell to The Mini-Apple Store: The Last Closed This Saturday in California

It was 2004 when the Apple Store stretched as the foam, but only in the United States. At that time, the Cupertino company opened a series of extra-pequeno size stores, within shopping centres, covering the basic needs of the customers. Now, with more than 1 billion devices iOS on the street, those stores can no longer more against the huge demand.

That is why this Saturday Apple will end with these stores, closing the last remaining at Oakridge (San Jose, California) and replacing it with a new larger premises. In the image you have that there was in Stanford… think the apartment where I live right now is bigger, but even if they seem ridiculously small it is a piece of the history of Apple that is going.

Apple largest Store for a big Apple

This does not only symbolize how Apple has grown in eleven years: approximately 50 square meters with a Genius Bar shop of only three squares no longer useless, and indeed even the longest bar in Spain we have Catalan Passeig de GrĂ cia (14 meters) store does not supply all the technical assistance of iPhone is asking for.

So yes: Apple Store larger is needed. And now that so many people have an iPhone or an iPad, you need to not only increase size but optimize the space available to care for everyone. Luckily, Angela Ahrendts has been working already months in this.
