Construction has begun on the new AT&T store inside the now vacated Ann Taylor (before that Viacom) corner storefront on Erie and Michigan. From what we understand by all the dust and a few visuals on an 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper, the store will be a concept that builds on current stores' designs - only much, much larger and with more interactivity. As we're told by a worker involved in the project, it will "blow the [nearby] Apple Store out of the water". There will be higher ceilings, lots of glass and glowing orange accents.
