Apple has announced that its The Oaks retail location in Thousand Oaks, California reopens this Saturday, August 27 at 10:00 a.m. local time. The location, which first opened on October 29, 2005, has been closed for renovations since March. The renovated space is expected to have a Jony Ive-inspired next-generation design and double the square footage within the shopping mall.

Meanwhile, Apple's retail location at the CambridgeSide Galleria shopping mall in Cambridge, a suburb of Boston, Massachusetts, will close for renovations one day later on Sunday, August 28. During the closure, Apple recommends that customers visit the nearby Apple Boylston Street or Apple Chestnut Hill locations. The closure is presumably to allow for similar next-generation design updates.

'Apple The *insert city name*' still sounds incredibly stupid. I mean, why change something as simple as 'Apple Store'. Everybody is already really familiar with that. This new naming scheme doesn't make any sense.

I'd rather see them renovate the product line. I am more (or less now) drawn to the stores for the products. I might go check out the new stores but I am not going to buy anything simply because the store I am in is awesome.

Remember when it was an actual store that you could buy products in? The nice theatre in the back to watch keynotes, do trainings, and watch product videos? Remember the kids area? Remember the actual checkout area?

Those were the days.


Now its all watches for this guy.
