    10,000 square-foot space offers retailer's latest products.

    There's a new spot on Michigan Avenue to get lost in electronics heaven -- or to spend your lunch money.

    AT&T unveils a new 10,000 square-foot flagship store on Sept. 1 in the old Ann Taylor space at 600 North Michigan Avenue.

    Company officials say the store will offer the products and services you'll find at your typical AT&T retail store, but it'll also be a destination to get a glimpse of future technologies like connected cars that use wireless technology to aid driving.

    Expect visual overload with 100 digital screens spread throughout the store.
