Memphis will be one of the first US cities to get a 'next-generation' Apple Store

The Apple Store in the Memphis, Tennessee area is moving to a new location, but more importantly it will also be one of the first company stores in the US to get a new 'next-generation' design. The current store, located at 7615 W. Farmington Blvd., in the Shops of Saddle Creek North, will be shut down while the new store will be close by at 2031 West St., within the Shops of Saddle Creek South.

The Memphis Daily News reports that Germantown Design Review Commission recently approved the plans for the new store, which will include a three-panel glass front. Apple's representative, Rick Millitello, gave the Commission some details more about the design:

Other aspects of the design, according to Millitello, include a matte granite reinforced panel on the exterior as well as natural oak tables inside. The store will also feature a changeable display that will include living plants at times, TV displays that change and artwork, among other things.

There's no word on when the new Memphis store will open, but the new next-generation Apple Store design will begin appearing in some locations overseas later this fall.
