Grand Central Terminal Packed for Apple Retail Store Opening


Following Wednesday's media preview event, Apple's massive new retail store in Manhattan's Grand Central Terminal opened to the public today at 10:00 AM. As noted by Fortune, the main concourse of the terminal was filled with hundreds of people waiting for the store to open as hundreds more red-shirted Apple employees prepared to welcome them.


As is traditional for Apple retail store openings, the company is handing out store-specific T-shirts to early visitors. Fortune notes that Apple has prepared to hand out 4,000 T-shirts for today's opening.

Looks like a miserable experience, i love apple, but i would not show up to this.. apple stores are busy enough on any normal day when you need to buy something, i don't get the big deal, its not like its the first store in NYC theres other stores if you need to go buy something, and its not like theres any new products on sale at this specific store. so why the crowd? Are all these people showing up for a free t shirt? if thats the case ...wow

Yeah, if you want a concert, go to a Microsoft store opening.

Frankly, making fun of people going to an Apple store opening is way sadder than going to an Apple store opening.

i wonder which losers camped out for the opening, lol.


One COULD say the true loser has so little going on in their own life that they have time to judge what others do with their time.

Haven't you been watching TV? It's where some assholes break into your house, remove everything in your living room, then remodel to make it look like an Apple store, but sells cheap PC laptops instead. AND THEY WON'T LEAVE TILL YOU BUY ONE.
