Chapter in this post:
For 20 years now, Apple has not only sold its own products through third-party dealers and the Internet, but also in its own locations. On May 19, 2001, the tech giant from Cupertino opened its first two stores in the United States, the one in Tysons Corner, Virginia being called the very first because it opened three hours before the one in Glendale, California. Special attention has now been paid to the Apple Store in Tysons Corner, because it has been recreated in great detail as a 3D model for an AR tour. You can download the augmented reality experience with your iPhone or iPad (optimized for A12 and newer chips) from 9to5Mac.
The trade magazine 9to5Mac is giving its readers a four-part series of articles for the 20th anniversary of the Apple Stores. The third part of yesterday is about the first Apple Store, which opened on May 19, 2001 in Tysons Corner, Virginia. In addition to a Genius Bar, there was already a pro, kids, music and home area. In the middle of the retail space were two rows of black shelves selling over 300 third-party software titles. At the very back there was a presentation, demo and workshop area with a Mac, a large screen and three benches for the participants. See everything here.
If you want a guided tour in which the individual areas and the hoped-for shopping experience of the customers are explained by none other than Steve Jobs, then you will find it on YouTube. The video "Apple - Steve Jobs introduces the first Apple Store Retail 2009" has been there since 2001. Unfortunately, this is far from HD quality, but still offers an insight into Apple's first own on-site sales concept, some of which still continues today. You can watch the video below as an embedded element or with this link . call
