Apple today announced that its Omotesando retail store in Tokyo reopens Friday, September 20 following renovations, as noted by Japanese blog Mac Otakara. Doors will open at 8 a.m. local time. September 20 is iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max, and Apple Watch Series 5 launch day.


Likewise, Apple previously announced that its iconic Fifth Avenue store in Manhattan reopens September 20 at 8 a.m. local time.

"We're transforming our iconic store into a space that's open to collaboration of all kinds," reads Apple's new Fifth Avenue store preview page. "Made for the city where creativity never sleeps. Stop by during our weeklong celebration to get inspired by some of the best creative talent in the city."


To celebrate the reopening of its Fifth Avenue flagship, Apple has temporarily covered the store's iconic glass cube in an eye-catching iridescent film. Below, the underground store has been significantly expanded in size, with circular skylights added at ground level to allow natural light into the store.

Update: Apple Antara in Mexico City will open at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, September 27. It will be the company's second retail store in Mexico.

Any place but here or there....
I was at 5th Avenue yesterday. Okay, the film wrapped cube looked nicer in person (the purple was beautiful), but I certainly hope the staff has their poop together come September 20th. If they are as disinterested as yesterday, no amount of space will make the revamped store welcoming.

I also hope 5th Avenue swap out the Mac Mini that is on display as it has the WiFi issue, and the bluetooth response times are achingly slow.
