    Just read on the IFOAppleStore forum Apple UK is opening one of these hyped up Apple Premium Stores in Manchester?

    All good in my opion, with the trafford centre, the arndale and now the Apple Digital Store in Piccadilly we have aplenty of places to waste boring days drooling over Macs!

    It gave this link although it doesnt look like its open yet, I may have a look at weekend.

    Only because I work there and it beats driving an hour and paying £6 parking to go the Bullring Birmingham store. :D

    At least the KRCS store in Leeds looks more 'apple like' after the refurb. An Apple owned store would be nice however.

    An Apple Store is something else. For a start they get the new stuff in stock really quickly. You also get the Genius Bar if you have problems.

    Wooden flooring and jazz music alone isn't quite the same. Leeds, when you add in Bradford, Guiseley etc. has such a large catchment it must be on Apple's plans.

    Is that the old Piccadilly Hotel itself? Hope they've done it up since I was last there.

    Things to come?

    Betcha that there'll eventually be an AppleStore here:

    Apparently, when finished in 2009 it will be the largest shopping mall in Europe. All on the doorstep of those who live in Central or West London... I've been past the site recently and it looks absolutely huge.

    That's if Multiplex don't do a Wembley on it. 2009 could become 2015 very quickly with that lot involved :p

    BTW, for anyone who doesn't know the location, just below left of the big red light you can see BBC Television Centre and bottom right corner is the Shepherd's Bush roundabout.

    One in Cardiff would be nice at least, I'd ask for Swansea but I don't think it would receive one before the Welsh capital.:)

    HE discount is only Online/on the phone I'm afraid, you only get 8% in physical stores.

    It's not I'm afraid. It's a completely new building at the side of Piccadilly Gardens. I think most of its been empty since it was built about three years ago - apart from some God-awful 'trendy' bar called Kro Bar, which is always empty.

    The Piccadilly Hotel is still there I'm afraid. The regeneration people obviously had a bit of a blind spot when they rebuilt the city centre in the 90's.

    Anyway, a couple of miles down the A6 is clearly where it's at ;)
