Apple is Renovating Every Single One of Its Stores (And Goodbye Genius Bar)

Apple Stores have the greatest sales per square foot of any retailer in the known galaxy, so the concept seems to be working well. But Apple is worried about things going stale, so the company is going to redesign all 480 of its stores at the rate of 5 to 10 per cent every year.

The Genius Bar will eventually disappear–sort of. It will soon be known worldwide as the “Genius Grove.” Seriously.

The first new-look store is in–surprise–San Francisco. Further information at Billboard.
