Wonderful news, Apple fans: the Cupertino-based company's new flagship store in Union Square will open this Saturday. The entirely renovated new digs go up at the former Levi's store space at 300 Post.
The neighborhood's current Apple Store, at 1 Stockton, sits right above San Francisco's Central Subway project. Loud and constant construction forced the store to move, providing an ideal opportunity to build a bigger and better space. In line with Apple's overarching postmodern contemporary motif, the new store will feature open-space galore, grey and white interiors, and its biggest standout, two massive sliding glass doors at the front.
As some SF longtime residents may recall, 1 Stockton also used to be home to the greatest Sephora store of all time, featuring three floors of beauty product heaven and a water element (before water elements were unfairly deemed tacky) running throughout the store. The Apple incarnation will close its doors for good on Friday.
The new store opens at 10am.
Here's another shot of the new store prior to its final polish.
