CHICAGO -- Apple is offering a sneak peek of its new flagship store on Michigan Avenue.

The state of the art store now sits next to the tribune tower along the Chicago River.

It's near the site of the original fort dearborn, where Chicago was founded. And the architect says he wanted to integrate that into the new store's design to make it a public gathering spot.

The store officially opens to the public Friday.
