Apple opens next-generation Apple Store in Memphis

Apple opens next-generation Apple Store in Memphis
This past weekend, Apple opened a next-generation Apple Store in Memphis. It cost Apple $1.5 million for the 37-foot television display, and motorized tables designed by Jony Ive include panels that flip open to reveal USB ports and electrical outlets. Eventually, all Apple Stores will display these new tables.

Wooden shelves adorn the walls forming a section of the store known as the Avenue, where consumers can try on headsets and sample other accessories. Apple retail chief Angela Ahrendts says that she is trying to get this part of the store to convey the feeling of window shopping on a sleepy street in a small town.

The main attraction though, is the aforementioned 37-foot television with a high-res screen and an edge-to-edge display. Apple will show promotional videos and commercials on the glass.

Apple Store, Saddle Creek is located at 2031 West Street, Germantown. Check out some pictures of the store's interior by clicking on the slideshow below.

Wasn't too long ago that the light bulb was introduced to Tennessee. Excellent progress!

Haha actually the iPhone 4S does not even have 1gb of RAM, it only has 512mb:D Despite that, it's quite impressive that it runs the latest version of iOS decently well.

lol in Memphis. It will be broken into before it's first year of operation. With the average income here being about $31k seems like it's not exactly a hotspot for expensive tech. Then again it's a place rife with tech ignorance, so that's right up Apple's alley. If you guys want me to go in and take some pictures with my Note 5 I'd be glad to :D

I wonder how much apple spends on average in order to built one of its stores. Anyone know?

Nice looking store concept, but they need more contrasts. The soft wood colors they have need to be darker IMO.
