Apple to Open Store With Its First Ever Double-Row Genius Bar
Apple is planning to move its Garden State Plaza (NJ) store to a larger space in the mall and equip the store with its first ever double-row Genius Bar, according to ifoAppleStore.
Inside, there will be two Genius Bars parallel to the rear wall, one behind the other, allowing 360-degree access. Apple first tested a "floating" Genius Bar at the Los Gatos (N. Calif.) store last July to further mobil-ize its Geniuses. The standard Genius table was rotated 90-degrees to the rear wall, and storage drawers were installed in the rear wall. The next step came just two weekends ago when the expanded Bellevue Square (Wash.) store opened featuring yet another configuration: the Genius Bar table stretches nearly the entire width of the store, and is set parallel to the rear wall but about 20 feet away.
According to the site, the longest Genius Bar table can be found in Amsterdam. It's 82 feet long.
