    Apple today announced it will be opening a new store at Domain Northside in Austin, Texas on Saturday, November 11 at 10:00 a.m. local time.

    Apple's current store at The Domain shopping center in Austin, Texas

    Apple's nearby store at The Domain should permanently close after business hours on Friday, over 10 years after it originally opened in March 2007. Most employees will presumably transition to the new store.

    Domain Northside is a new shopping and dining district of The Domain, an upscale outdoor shopping center in northern Austin. The first of more than 70 stores and restaurants at Domain Northside opened in 2016.

    The new store will feature Apple's latest retail design, which typically includes large glass doors, sequoia wood tables and shelves, a large video screen for Today at Apple sessions, and light boxes spanning the length of the ceiling.

    All of Apple's stores opened since September 2015 have been based on the updated aesthetic. Apple has also renovated or relocated nearly 50 existing stores around the world as part of the modernization of its retail chain.

    Update: MacRumors reader Holden Satterwhite, known as Appleosophy on YouTube and Instagram, has shared a video of Apple Domain Northside's grand opening.

    I frequent this Apple store, it's extremely busy. I hope the new one is larger..the Microsoft store in the same shopping area is a nice place to relax and enjoy some peace and quiet. :)

    Yet, Apple doesn't open Apple Stores in countries where there is no but has to.

    I just bought my 8+ there two weeks ago. The current location is a great spot, but man that place is always packed. Hopefully, the size and flow are better at the new spot. Will have to stop in over the weekend...

    There are in fact usually more Microsoft employees inside than customers.

    What are you trying to say? Your comment doesn't quite make sense in English.

    I think it means "Yet, Apple doesn't open Apple Stores in countries where there isn't one, but the level of demand would lead someone to think that they should."

    Is it me or does Apple employ a lot of people for one store? I did notice it many times.. their stores have always been over a crowded, and mostly due to so many employees...
