it would have been nice if they had opened in East paloalto because it would attract other retailers to move in there and generate more jobs for the East PaloAlto-ans. Of course, I understand nothing stops the East PaloAlto-ans from looking for a job in Palo Alto. But the chances are slim that they will get it because of where they come from.

The new store has a much louder ambient noise level than the previous store layouts.

It is difficult to hear during the group classes on the open tables and during genius bar appointments. I hope that the Palo Alto store plan is not rolled out nationally. At best,the acoustics are similar to Grand Central Station on a quiet workday. Such an acoustic environment does not facilitate learning or communication during the learning and sales process.
