    I have now visited an Apple Store in all 3 countries that have one!

    I have visited the Tokyo and Osaka stores, the London store and several in the USA (LA, New York, Miami, NJ mini store).

    Which have you visited?

    Well, that screws up my perfect record. I do not know when i will get to CAnada so I cannot claim to have visited in every country.

    BTW, when was the Toronto Store opened?

    Two of the three English stores, Birmingham and London. I find the whole excitement about them completely mystifying though - they're just shops…

    New York Soho store once.

    San Francisco store many times.


    Ironically, considering I am Canadian, I have never visited the Canadian Apple store.

    Dude. That's awesome. :)
    Even though you may not know the language (I dunno if you did or not. Eep) Mac is the universal.... meaning up fire up your translation widget, haha.

    When I'm old, crazy, and Rich (in that particular order) I'm going to visit every single Apple store.

    it'll be awesome. I'll take my flying-jet Car and rock. :)

    I haven't been to any Apple stores...just my campus computer store that happens to sell Apple stuff. :-( The closest one is in MA. I'm in maine and it's like a 3 hour drive.

    So far I haven't visited any stores outside of Massachusetts. The ones visited are North Shore Apple Store, Peabody; CambridgeSide Galleria, Cambridge; and Chestnut Hill Mall Store, Chestnut Hill. Looking forward to visiting the SOHO Apple Store in NYC. Want to see what a Flag Ship Store looks like. Also NYC is just a great place to visit.

    Same. That's where I got my iPod mini when they were really scarce. And I live 2 hours away.

    I have only visited 1 Apple Store, the one at Barton Creek, and I can safely say that it is not worth the drive. Other ones may be a different story however...

    I have done the Tokyo, LA Grove, London Regent Street - thats nearly all countries. Oh, did the Dallas store too.

    To be honest, I am always dissappointed [being an Architect] with the stores...... they could be so much better and reflect the design of the computers a bit more.

    The nearest one is probably in Japan which is a $3000 flight away. And then of course, I'd have to fly back. :(

    You should receive an award for being a very loyal customer. Imaging that you are well known to the staff. I'm at mine probably once a month, sometimes more. Some of them know me. It seems that the staff changes frequently. What do you tend to do on your weekly visits Katie? ;)

    Good to see...

    ...that several non-Japanese/Japan residents have been to the Tokyo Apple Store. I have to say it is the best because of the glass elevator. I don't know if any of the other stores have glass elevators, but the ones i have been to all look the same. Big open entry way on the ground floor, glass stairs up to the theatre and Genius Bar. Nice design and al, but no elevator! :p

    I've been to the Nagoya one, and the Cambridge Side Galleria one in Boston.

    iAlan: there's a new one opening in Shibuya on August 6th. Are you going to be there?
