The Apple stores have become emblematic points of the cities. Many of them are located in important parts or with a certain history that invites you to visit them. In addition to their minimalist interior design , some of them have truly impressive facades.
But the Apple Store is changing. The company’s purpose is to renew them to make them even more modern and to make them more consumer-friendly spaces where various activities take place. One of the most important ones that is still being renovated is the glass cube on 5th Avenue in New York. But it is not the only one. The last one that there are plans for a remodelling is in Spain.
In Spain there are a total of 11 Apple stores throughout the country. The last one to open was in Madrid at the Puerta del Sol. On February 10th, the App Store located in Passeig de Gràcia, Barcelona, will close so that some changes can be made. This store was opened in July 2012, being the eighth at the time and overlooking Plaza Cataluña.
As reported by 9to5Mac, and while the works are taking place, customers are recommended to visit the other Apple Store located in the city, Apple La Maquinista . The space in which this store is located was renovated in 2018, becoming the first in Spain to adopt the company’s new design elements.
It is likely that the Apple Store in Passeig de Gràcia will follow the new rules that have been established and that can already be seen in other stores such as Covent Garden, Santa Monica and Palo Alto. In general, the setting should be very similar to the previous one, but with new styles that merge with the existing ones. It will almost certainly incorporate a large screen for playing videos and a forum .
Many people thought that Apple had the Spanish stores a bit abandoned, but this step shows that this is not the case. It’s just a matter of time before the rest of the shops in the other provinces adopt the new design standards.
