Time for a road trip to see that next-gen Apple retail store in Memphis, Tennessee

I think it’s time for a road trip. I live in Nashville, Tennessee, but 212 miles away, in Memphis, Apple has opened a next generation retail store that boasts, among other, things a 37-foot, $1.5 million TV screen opposite the store’s entrance that goes almost from the floor to the ceiling. 

According to AppleInsider, the store — located at 2031 West Street in Memphis’ Germantown suburb — sports new wooden shelves containing headphones, speakers, docks, and other accessories.

There are also tables designed by the company’s design guru, Jony Ive. The tables come with wooden panels that elevate when a motion sensor is triggered to reveal concealed plug sockets and USB ports. The area of the store where these wooden display cases are based is dubbed "The Avenue.”

Apple has 481 retail stores in 18 countries and an online store available in 39 countries. (By the way, just to clear up some confusion regarding Nashville and Memphis, the latter was where Elvis Presley lived; the former is home to the Grand Ole Opry.)

And, hey, Apple we don’t have any retail stores in the northern end of Davidson County/Nashville. I have the perfect location for one in mind, so, Tim, give me a call!
