Many shops, restaurants, bars, cafeterias, ice cream parlors and even a supermarket. There was already decoration for Christmas, which made the atmosphere more charming! Loved!!
U Village is a great place to stroll around, have a cup of coffee, and do some window shopping. Although it does not have a lot of store options. The ambiance is great especially during Christmas. Par... more »
This is a beautiful, modern, Apple store right in the heart of University Village. I had the touch screen go out on my iPhone, and it was easy to book a repair appointment on line. I showed up and was immediately greeted by an Apple employee who checked me in for my appointment, and gave me a seat. Within minutes another Apple employee arrived and sat next to me to get to the problem with my phone. He told me the phone could be fixed in an hour or less, so I let him take it, and then walked around to check out the many cool stores and shops in University Village. I was told to be back at a specific time to get my phone and when I went back at the time, I was again greeted by an Apple employee at the door, offered a seat, and came out with my phone, sat next to me, and made sure I was happy with the repairs. The phone is perfect again. Overall, a really great experience at the store and with the wonderful employees. I will comment that, as others have noted, the store is a bit crowded, but it was not oppressive . On my visit, the new iPhone 11 was in its first few weeks of launch, so I think a lot of people were there to check out the new line up. If you go to this store, there is lots of parking near the store in lots all around the stores in University Village. If you can't quickly find a spot near the store, just head to one of the parking garages where there are tons of spaces to park. Closest lot to the Apple store is next to Crate and Barrel, or another one just north of the QFC grocery store.
The Apple store is well designed and well centralized in University Village. The employees are all very knowledgeable and are willing to help. I really liked the way everything is laid out but I found it often very crowded.
