Apple moving?

Postby Coyote » Thu Mar 09, 2017 8:46 pm

So, Uffda texted me with a sleuthing request. I won't tell you what he told me, I will let Uffda fIll that in, but,

I don't know how I missed this... There is a remodel of a Village Point bay, where I think Z Gallery used to be, the remodel is for a $3.5m project for a "Electronics STORE - Retail". Could Apple be moving across the street?

They did just create a new concept for their store designs that they put in display in San Fran. Is omaha really important enough to receive the new design this soon or did the cards line up perfectly with that space being open in Village Pointe?

How long has Apple been in that bay? Aren't they due by Apple standards for a remodel?

I think the one in Des Moines has the new store concept already.

Apple is moving full steam ahead and store remodels and expansions. It's not exclusive to major markets like San Francisco. Jacksonville's new store that is opening this Saturday (relocated and larger than original) and next up is Grand Rapids.

The typical update cycle for an Store is 11 years.

Was at Village Pointe today and the space is gutted inside and out. It's now just a roof with supports and a back wall. Looks like Apple will be changing everything to fit with their new design, even the facade and windows. Will be a big store and very bright since it's on a corner.

Today I saw the light-guage steel surrounding the new store for construction, so which of the new designs would fit into this shell ?

Any guesses ?
