    Apple today announced its Northbrook Court store in Northbrook, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, is moving to a new location within the shopping mall this weekend. The grand opening is set for Saturday, September 9 at 10:00 a.m. local time.

    The new store will be located across the hall on the lower level, between H&M and Banana Republic, according to property management GGP.

    The current store, between Sephora and Finish Line, originally opened in July 2005. Friday will likely be its final day of business in that location.

    The new store should be around 10,000 square feet, which is nearly double the size of the current store, according to Northbrook Court's leasing plan.

    The new store will also be based on Apple's latest retail design, which typically includes wide, open spaces with some combination of large glass doors, sequoia wood tables and shelves, large video screens for Today at Apple sessions, and light boxes spanning the length of the ceiling. 

    All new Apple Stores opened since September 2015 have been based on the new design language, including flagship-tier locations such as Apple Union Square in San Francisco and Apple World Trade Center in New York City. Apple has renovated over 40 existing stores to reflect the newer aesthetic.

    (Thanks, Storeteller!)

    Much like the Bluewater UK store is being doubled in size - though thankfully they bought the space right next to it so there is less moving about to do.

    It's a small store. The extra room will be much appreciated.

    This store needed the upgrade. Northbrook court is a gem of a mall. Not too busy and has all the good stores. If it only were on the other side of lake-cook rd

    Still want to know when Woodland Hills will open again, and when Century City will move.

    The store could definitely use an upgrade. Always super busy in too small of a space. Looking forward to visiting the new location!

    If it were on the other side of Lake Cook Road it'd be in my back yard, so no thanks :)
