The Apple Store celebrates its 10th Anniversary.

Today marks the 10th anniversary of Apple’s retail stores. On May 19, 2001 the very first store opened in McLean, Virginia, followed later that same day by a store in Glendale, California. Even though the McLean store opened first, the Glendale store carries the designation “001,” causing a bit of controversy among statistics-friendly nerds.

Today the number of Apple Stores has grown to over 300 around the world, as this list created by TUAW illustrates.

Congratulations to Apple on this achievement. Here’s to 10 more successful years.
