For an Apple store that’s not even open yet, it’s quite an intelligence coup to discover a previously top secret “lounge” in the works. That’s right: the upcoming Apple store in the spacious St. Louis Galleria is going to have a lounge with free WiFi and a place to check-in for Genius Bar appointments plus lots of space to boot.
Okay, so mentioning “lots of space to boot” smacks of mootness but check out these numbers: The Apple store will occupy 6,000 square-feet and have a 55 foot wide storefront. If this weren’t enough, expect all the usual aesthetic trademarks of an Apple store such as stainless steel furniture and stone flooring.
As for additions, we have no idea on this front. Besides, what we’ve got going for us right now is the blue print (pictured above) and a few measurements. People are crossing their fingers for comfy furniture and beverages though—it’s a lounge remember?
In case your imagination can’t ear the strain of feverishly expecting this particular Apple store to open, how about a quick visit of the Microsoft store in Mission Viejo, Calif. The lounge they’ve got there is a close approximation of what apple’s got in the works.
