Today, Apple opened its relocated Apple Store in Los Angeles.

The new Apple The Grove opened its doors to customers in the city right in time for holiday shopping. The new location is twice the size of the original store and adopts the modern designs that we now come to expect from a relocated, redesigned, or new location for the company.

The old store, as detailed in an earlier report, served over 27 million visitors over 19 years. The new store wasn't quite ready in time for iPhone 13 time, but it's here now and will no doubt be the focus for many big iPhone launches over the coming years.

The entirely new Apple The Grove opened this Friday, November 19, at the popular shopping destination in Los Angeles. Located in the heart of the open-air plaza, the brand new store is nearly twice the size of the original building and was redesigned to be a new gathering place for the Los Angeles community to discover Apple's products and services, get support, and participate in free Today at Apple sessions or popular Photo Walks at The Grove.

The big opening saw Apple CEO Tim Cook and head of people Deirdre O'Brien put in an appearance as Apple got yet another flagship store underway.
