Easton Town Center Apple Store to get construction makeover

updated 10:35 am EDT, Wed April 27, 2011

Early outlet still using old designs

Apple's Easton Town Center store in Columbus, Ohio will temporarily close next week, a report says. During the downtime construction workers will replace the ceiling and floors of the shop, and also install a rolldown security screen for the front doors. Apple Stores have becoming a growing target for thieves, to the point that early April saw one suspect killed in a botched robbery attempt. The company's insistence on glass facades can make its outlets an easier target than some alternatives.

Part of the reason for the upgrade is said to be bringing Easton in line with current Apple design aesthetics. The shop was only the company's seventh to be built, dating back to September 2001. It still features two black metal pillars, each with a lit Apple logo; the architectural trait is one of many that have long been abandoned by the company, although roughly 20 stores still have it.
