In this video Steve Jobs introduces the first Apple Store in May 2001. So this month is the 10th Anniversary of Apple’s retail stores. On May 19, 2001 the very first store opened in McLean, Virginia, followed later that same day by a store in Glendale, California. Even though the McLean store opened first, the Glendale store carries the designation “001”.
Today the number of Apple Stores has grown to over 300 around the world. Congratulations to Apple on this achievement. Here’s to 10 more successful years.
