The whole front wall is glass and the store is about 4 times as large as the old one. The crowd gathered well before the 9:30AM opening and when they officially opened the store everyone rushed to grab a free t-shirt and look at all the great products.
The layout inside the new store includes areas for each of the major products and accessories.
The sales associates were out in force helping people spend their money.
The new store also has a lot more space dedicated to Personal Setup and a much larger Genius Bar
A little poking around revealed that each of the rectangles on the Genius Bar wall (see picture above) is actually a drawer filled with cords, parts and paperwork. A nice way to keep things tidy.
Another great feature of the store is the large skylight in the center. It gives the store a wide open feel, and in the normally dreary Northwest rain, will offer much needed exposure to sunlight, even if it's filtered through clouds.
