    There are three Apple Stores opening this weekend! Very excited as the Reston store is near me. I am wondering what the two people that attends all the Apple Store opening would do. Maybe they'll clone themselves?

    Naperville, Illinois, near Chicago: 10am
    Reston, Virginia, near Washington DC: 10am
    Toronto Canada: 9:30am

    I think I may come over to the Reston opening if I can make it out the door that early (e.g. not hungover). I'm in the process of deciding whether to get an iMac or a MBP and external (monitor or television).

    No, I pretty much live on Reston Parkway, so the town center will be crazy close!

    My sister used to work for the Tysons Apple last year or so

    I'm not too fond of the Fair Oaks Apple, seems cramped :(

    Now if Apple would open a store in Fairview Heights, IL just outside st louis or in Evansville, IN then I'd have an apple store within 90 minutes of my house then.

    LOL, the address snafu continues. I blame it on the washington dc, Northern Virginia water / air.

    Reston address is still off, well at least it's 1 block away, I bet you can see the line from the store from there.


    For those coming to Reston Apple Store, here is the exact address, where to park, and restaurants near by:

    Maybe I'll see some of you tomorrow. I'll have the pacman sticker on my laptop. =)

    I wish Apple would build a store in the Town Center mall off Barret Parkway in Kennesaw, Georgia.

    Are any of these considered a "flagship" store, or are all they the same? Only been to the Yorkdale & Eaton Centre ones

    The Reston store is a little smaller than Fair Oaks, unfortunately. I went there this afternoon and it was so crowded I couldn't get out.

    Yeah, I saw :( I took a peak on friday night while using the wifi at Panera

    I hate huge crowds in small places

    The Eddie Bower that apple replaced, wasnt it bigger? or am I crazy? :confused:

    Naperville IL is a bit of a stretch, but hey, I guess you can only put so many Apple stores in NYC.

    Sales of Macs in Canada is now > 10%

    You can probably find out by looking at the photos on apple.com/ca/retail


    Yes looks like Fair Oaks is larger, and has less tables? I was there for the Fair Oaks opening but usually go to Tysons.


    Chicago is the third largest city in the US...
