The first Apple store opened at 10 a.m. on May 19, 2001, at Tysons Corner Center in McLean, Virginia. The second opened three hours later at 10 a.m. Pacific Time at Glendale Galleria in Glendale, California. While most retailers are finding it hard to keep brick-and-mortar stores profitable, Apple continues to open new outlets all over the world (430 and counting). At Retale, we are interested in the successful balance between online and offline retail markets. So what better way to tip our caps to Apple’s 13th year in retail than by exploring its phenomenal growth and innovation. To read our story on the history of the Apple Store, visit our blog.
