Nashville, Tennesse, known fondly as Music City USA., is getting its first Apple Store.

As reported by 9to5Mac, Apple Downtown Nashville will be located on Fifth and Broadway and open on Monday, March 29.

Surrounded by music, art, history, dining, and shopping, Apple Downtown Nashville is a true urban destination in one of Nashville's most creative communities. The store anchors the massive new Fifth + Broadway development, a mixed-use project that aims to combine the best of Nashville culture with modern downtown living.

As explained by Michael Steeber, the new store is located right in the middle of the city's music and art community.

Next door to the store is the National Museum of African American Music, a new and one-of-a-kind destination dedicated to inspiring and educating communities about the important role African Americans played in shaping the music industry. Across the street are the Bridgestone Arena, famous Ryman Auditorium, and the Honky-Tonks of Lower Broadway, Nashville's entertainment district.

The store, while open to the public on day one, will be by appointment only due to COVID-19 safety precautions.

Apple Downtown Nashville is a single-level store with soaring wood ceilings and walls of limestone and glass. Corner windows overlook Broadway, and a Today at Apple Forum and Video Wall will fill the center of the store. The design represents Apple's most significant tier of retail architecture and is Tenessee's first walkable, downtown Apple Store.

It's good to see a new Apple Store opening up as there have recently been a few permanent closings. Stores are also now allowing customers to try on a pair of AirPods again, a sign that things are starting to get back to some semblance of normalcy.
