    Hi Everyone,

    I'm taking a trip out to California this summer and I would like to visit Apple's flagship store (my local Apple Store is in a mall :rolleyes: ). On Apple's retail site, it lists several stores in California (none particularly in Cupertino), but I was wondering which one of them was Apple's flagship store. Is there more than one? Which one do you guys like the best? Which one is the biggest?

    Thanks,
    JOD8FY

    Apple's current flagship stores:

    North Michigan Ave, Chicago, IL
    Stockton Street ,San Francisco, CA
    SoHo, New York, NY

    Regent Street, London, U.K
    Shinsaibashi, Japan

    These stores are noticeably bigger and are stand-alone. The majority of the other stores are in up-scale indoor and outdoor malls in suburban areas.

    At one point, Apple had an official Company Store at their headquarters. Not sure if they still exists if you plan on visiting infinite loop.

    I think you could purchase T-shirts and gift items.

    I have been to the San Francisco and the Soho stores... they are basically the same and both really rock.

    Plus, I just love SF!

    There IS a store at the Apple Campus, and is actually the only place that you can get Apple logo clothing that I know of.

    I especially love the black t-shirt that says "I visited the mothership" on it!

    :D

    The Apple Campus Store is still open - just there 6 or so weeks ago.

    Neat place.

    Thanks for the replies.

    Has anyone been to the San Francisco store? What were your impressions? Is it one of those "mulitple level" (as in more than one story) stores? I'm really excited to see it.

    Thanks again,
    JOD8FY

    The SF Store is very nice, right on Market street.

    We've got two stores over here now and two more coming later in the year but I still haven't been to either of them! :eek:

    I'm such a geek but I'm really looking forward to getting to London to see our flagship store!

    I've been to the SoHo, NY and SF flagships and prefer the SF one because it matches the powermacs and powerbooks :)

    Here's the somewhat hidden information page on The Company Store.

    Both the NY and London stores are cool in that the exteriors are not Apple desgined, but rather old buildings that have been restored. Apple has just "invdaded" in the inside of the building, making it really nice.

    Gotta luv Apple Stores

    I have been to 2 of the 3 stores in Japan (Ginza and Shinsaibashi), several in the USA (sorry if I get the names wrong I don't know US geograph so well..New York SoHo, LA Farmers Market, Miami The Grove, New Jersey Bridgewater Mall) have yet to visit any stores in London (will be ther in July on Business so will try to stop by).

    But I must say GINZA is by far teh best. Bigger than Shinsaibashi so it should be the flagship store for Japan, 4 floors and an amazing glass elevator. Plus the huge rotating logo on the top of the building
