Apple's Final Store With Original 2001 Entrance Closing for Renovations Tomorrow

Apple Tice's Corner in Woodcliff Lake, New Jersey will be temporarily closed for renovations starting Tuesday, January 31, according to Michael Steeber, who writes a weekly newsletter about Apple's retail stores. A reopening date has yet to be announced.

The closure is notable given that Apple Tice's Corner is the company's only remaining retail store with an original 2001 storefront design, which consists of a black facade with two backlit Apple logos bookending the entrance. Steeber said the scope of the upcoming renovations is unclear, so it remains to be seen if the facade will be updated.

Apple Tice's Corner originally opened in November 2001, just months after Apple's first retail stores opened in Tysons, Virginia and Glendale, California. The latter two stores have already had their facades updated during past renovations.

Apple operates over 520 retail stores around the world and is preparing to open its first locations in India and Malaysia over the coming months.

Apple Tice's Corner store looks great as is. I prefer leaving it in the 2001 original footprint. Hopefully, Apple doesn’t get rid of the backlit Apple logos. They are iconic!

Kind of sad. It doesn’t look dated from that picture. Would be nice if they’d keep one looking like that for posterity.

I still miss the Genius Bar. It was nice to have an actual place to go. Now you just wander around until someone comes up to help you wherever there is room. It is kinda janky.

It does look a bit dated but in a good way. Reminds me of a more optimistic and less corporate time in Apple's history.

Store opened 11/3/2001. I was there.

Sad they're going to renovate it - totally doesn't need it. It's in great shape and has that high-class feel Apple was going for.

Amazing to look back and remember this store design. It reminds me of the original Palo Alto, CA store before they changed locations.
