Apple is set to open a redesigned store in Tysons, Virginia, a suburb of Washington, D.C., on Friday, May 19. The new location is inside a shopping mall, and Apple has promised that the store will feature innovative, inclusive, and sustainable design enhancements that “reflect Apple’s values.”
The opening of the Tysons Corner store marks a significant milestone for Apple, as May 19 will be the 22nd anniversary of the date the company first opened its doors in Fairfax, Virginia. At the time, Steve Jobs toured the store and showed off its unique design.
Since then, Apple has opened numerous stores across the country and around the world, but the Tysons Corner location holds a special place in the company’s history as its first-ever retail store on the East Coast. Apple Glendale Galleria followed just a few hours later.
The new Tysons Corner store is moving to a different location within the mall, and Apple has promised that the store will feature design elements that reflect the company’s commitment to sustainability. The company has been working to reduce its carbon footprint and increase its use of renewable energy sources in recent years.

In addition to its sustainable design features, the new Tysons Corner store is also expected to offer visitors an inclusive and welcoming environment. Apple has long been committed to diversity and inclusion, and the company has made efforts to ensure that its stores are accessible to people of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds.
Apple often celebrates the opening of new stores with giveaways for the first visitors. Visitors to the new Tysons Corner store may be able to snag a commemorative t-shirt or postcard to mark the occasion.
