The Chicago Apple Store on North Michigan Avenue, which we reported on in May, will open its doors Friday, June 27 at 6:00 PM CT. “We’ve taken everything that we learned from our other stores and designed the ultimate Apple Store especially for you,” notes Apple. “We even put in the first-ever Apple Store Internet Café with 16 computers for you to check your email and experience the Mac at your own pace.” The Chicago store will be the third large format store, the other two being SoHo in New York and The Grove in Los Angeles. Other high profile stores are coming to San Francisco in Union Square (spring 2004) and its first retail store outside of the U.S., in Tokyo’s Ginza shopping district (early 2004).
