    Is anyone going to attend the opening at the South Shore Mall Apple Store, Braintree in the morning?

    What time do you plan to arrive?

    Wow, it was more crowded than I thought it'd be! I got in line at 10AM, and luckily there was still a few mighty mouses in stock. So far, I really like it.

    I've never been to an apple store before, and I must say I am impressed at the store design. I've never seen such elegance in a store.

    I did not bring my camera, however.

    Really? Did you check in the middle part of the store (ontop of the shelves) right behind the cashiers?

    I was in the Cambridge Side Galleria Apple Store about an hour ago and they didn't have any Mighty Mice(?) in stock anymore. A shop assistant told me they had sold out within an hour :eek:

    photo's of the store opening :)

    http://flickr.com/photos/me101z

    Lots of good piccies, long lines, the back wall looks great... even managed to get a shot of the first purchase, a colour ipod.

    I was also told that they did not have any MM's by multiple store associates... not sure what the box looked like, BUT they did have a bunch of ipod's and other "precious" merchandise located on the display shelving right behind the POS's at the front of the store...

    My experience in the apple store on saturday at the grand opening was excellent, helpful staff, not too crowded even at the start, the organisers didn't let the crowd swell inside, as blocks of shoppers left, a fresh block from the long line outside were allowed to enter...

    As you can see from the photo's and if you were there on saturday, the line was 3 and 4 deep, and stretched for quite a bit down the length of the plaza main floor.

    I left around 10:30am, happy in the knowledge that there is an apple store like 2 mins from my house, I intend to go back up sometime this wek to have a more relaxed nose around.

    I read on the Apple employment website that they are looking for staff for an apple store in the Derby St. Shops mini-mall location in Hingham, M. A very ritzy local with lots of high-end designer brands (Talbots etc...). I walked past a vacent unit on saturday and it would be an excellent location for one of their mini-stores.

    I'll spruce up my resume and fire it off, you never know!

    Yeah, behind the Cashiers inside the shelved they had iPods and stuff, but ontop of the shelve there was a ton of Mighty Mice.


    The lady in the back corner near the accessories (Keyboard, mice, etc) walked me up there because she also wanted to check if they had any in stock. Turns out they did!

    I too had a great experience. The staff was excellent, store design was amazing, and so are the products.
