    Just wondering...who has actually gone to an apple store and how many? I've been to 28 out of 52 (in the US) so far and well I can't find anyone who has been to more...

    I have, twice, to the same store, and it's much more than 200 miles away from me... I don't travel to large cities where you'd find Apple Stores that much... My high school band is planning a trip to Houston Texas, and part of the trip is a stop at the galleria... I'll be able to show my band friends what an Apple store is truly like...

    We don't even have one in the state. Next time I go to chicago, i'll definitely visit. There's a new mall slated to open here late next year, i'd imagine Apple will wait until then to open one... it's supposed to be bigger than the mall of america, 4 stories with a full-sized waterpark inside, among other features. I could see Apple doing it. It's just sooo far away!

    I now live in East Bay, Cali. The new Bay Street store is literally a block away. But even when I was out here checking for a place to live and visiting my school I drove to Palo Alto to see the store there. Sadly, it is nicer than the one next door.

    Now get this - one of my buddies with whom a friendship has been built on pro-audio and Macs had never been to one until I dragged him. He has lived in the area his entire life.

    Here's another poll - how many have been to the Cupertino HQ? I went all three times I came to San Francisco, and again when I moved across the bay. (If only the Apple Store had all those great T-shirts, coffee mugs, etc)

    Only 2 - the one near me at Mayfair Mall in a suburb of Milwaukee, and the one at Woodfield Mall in a suburb of Chicago.

    Mayfair's is a "boutique" whilst Woodfield's is normal-sized.

    I go to the one at Woodfield mall in Shaumburg IL all the time. They are working on a new one downtown Chicago in the old Gap building. I can't wait for them to finish! One of these days I'll go visit the one in Oakbrook IL too.

    I stopped at the Raleigh store on my way back from a gig in the outer banks. Pretty cool. It's in one of those outdoor malls.

    May I ask why you've been to so many?

    I've only been to two of them, but one of them is close enough to work that I can go daily if I want!

    (I only go once a week. :D )

    I've been to 1 apple store many times as it's a few miles away. Never bought anything at the store though. :eek:

    Same here. Hopefully this will be the year that Apple decide to expand out of the US. At least here in London there are a number of stores that devote a lot of space to Macs.

    Even though living in the UK, on recent travels I've been to the Glendale, LA one in it's first month of opening, and since then to the Boston, MA one, and the Phoenix AZ one - all have been superb - Hello to Helen in the Apple Store Biltmore if she's reading this!!

    Apple should put one in the suburbs of Kansas City, MO on the Kansas side. I think it would do well. The closest one to me is in St. Louis.

    I think we are going to the Mall of America this summer in MN.
