ha, that's great, I wonder if it included all the people who showed up on the 23rd? and I'm wondering how they were counting - was it the number of store purchases?

nice design and layout..... very classy......:)

i doubt it was the number of store purchases... if that were the case, then damn. they would've had probably over a million visitors in that case. i think MAYBE 25% of the people buy something when they go in... then again, i could be way off given that i go in just to mess around with the newest ***** and don't usually buy anything..

thats awsome man.

very good design like igav said.

Man, that ad had to run a small fortune. Very classy.

the design is almost as good as the store itself... man, it's freaking huge. i thought the tysons store was big... but this thing is so spacious. it feels to me like they're wasting space really. except they have plenty of pretty much each item so there's nothing left to fill it with...

i went there on a random day (tuesday afternoon) and it was packed... that's always good to see.

edit: as for the ad costing a lot.... not much compared to the cost to lease the store space eh? ha

It says 100,000 visitors, So that means 100,000 people came into the store but that does not mean they all bought something. It is just a count of everyone who entered its doors.

Great ad though!!
