Apple announced that a retail store at Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica will temporarily close from 16th September.

The closure of the store is set to begin 4 days after the Apple 's special event on September 12, the Steve Jobs Theater. There, the updated iPhone and Apple Watch model will be released. Historically, customers will be able to purchase new iPhones and Apple Watches within a few weeks after the announcement, so customers who frequently use the Santa Monica store will anticipate shopping in the fall.
Apple steadily renovated some of the more recent "classic" retailers in 2018 by replacing Genius bars with video walls and forum seats. At least 10 stores designed to fill the gap between old stores and Apple's most modern retail design have already undergone partial refurbishment or are currently upgrading.

At the beginning of these refurbishment was in Apple Palo Alto (an important place where you are receiving a display case of contemporary "Avenue" products and are almost indistinguishable from brand new stores). The location of Apple 's Third Street Promenade is about the same design as Palo Alto and is expected to be treated the same. A similar change is likely to occur at Apple Highland Village and Apple Upper West Side. Both share the details of major buildings such as arched glass roofs and stone walls.
The renovation work of Palo Alto was completed in 48 days. A similar short closing period is expected in Santa Monica. In other words, stores may open in time for the busy Black Friday shopping season.
