A new Apple Store has opened in Vancouver, Canada, and has twice the space as the previous store.

Apple Pacific Centre is a two-story retail location, with a glass facade from floor to ceiling that allows for natural light to enter the building. A grand staircase connects the two floors together, with the first for retail and the second decorated with a video wall and Forum for Today at Apple sessions.
