Shareology was in a nostalgic mood this holiday weekend; she journeyed to Uptown Minneapolis, where she had lived for 17 years across from the Uptown Theater. My, oh, my: the changes! Of course, she remembered MAC, but now Victoria’s Secret and NorthFace add retail zing to Hennepin Avenue. But the biggest retail zing on Hennepin is definitely the new Apple store.
Shareology admired the outside and then ventured inside:
Shareology understands that Apple strongly prefers she not take photos inside the Apple stores….still…..can’t hurt to ask politely one more time. Well, dear Shareology readers, she didn’t get photo permission, but she did get a tour of the first-ever-in-the-world Apple Briefing Room! It’s tucked away on an upper floor in the new Apple location in Uptown. Basically, it’s an executive conference room loaded with Apple gear. Fronting Hennepin Avenue, off the Briefing Room are two patios, with table and chairs for 4, plus a grass area. (Hmm, real grass? Forever grass? Shareology didn’t ask…) These patios surround a skylight that floods the main sales area below with light.
The Briefing Room includes a conference table seating 16, and every Apple product imaginable: iPhones, iPads, big screen….. So: got a business problem you want to solve? Come in to the Apple folks, bring your staff, and have Apple help you and your business. For information call the Uptown Apple store at (952) 229-1463, or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
