    Apple does appear to have a magic sauce. I remember back a decade ago when lots of consumer electronics companies had their own stores. In the Galleria mall in St. Louis there was a Bose store, a Bang & Olufson store, a Brookstone, a Radio Shack. All have since closed and like another post mentioned the Microsoft store is often void of people. Samsung has a very few stores... I guess.

    Every single pundit, analyst, and retail “expert” scoffed at Apple opening its own stores. They literally laughed themselves into convulsions. So what do Apple stores have that others don’t? What makes them different? 

    I'd prefer a location farther west like out in Chesterfield, a stand alone location that looks like the store at Apple Park or at Michigan Avenue. I'm a much bigger fan of the West County location since it got the store update. 

    If St. Louis would clean up downtown the plaza by the Old Courthouse right next to the Peabody Building would be a sensational location but I'm afraid that will never happen.

    OT  but ... I was about to correct you and point out Chesterfield is east!  Then I realized you didn't mean THE Chesterfield, my hometown.

    The real Chesterfield ;)

    Apple may need to slow down on expenses renovating stores so often and open store where it can expand products sale.

    Apple Store in the Natick (MA) Collection has been closed since May o 2018. Totally missed the Christmas season. Microsoft Store right next to it doing better and better, busy over the holidays. Had to go to Chestnut Hill or Dedham for service.
