    Hey, there is definitely one at the new development. It's still only at base build stage so won't open for a couple of months, but I go past it everyday to get the shop I am working on myself. There are both signs outside the store itself and on the floor map.

    I think it will go over yep. I haven't seen a single shop in the development that is actually being fitted out interior design wise, though most are wrapping up the base build things so probably shouldn't be too long. The actual centre looks good and would most probably be ready for the 30th October like planned, but the shops might not be for a little longer unless the workforce is stepped up. I don't know how long fitting out takes, but if similar to the shop I'm in, it probably won't start for 3-4 weeks which only leaves them another 4 to completely finish. We will have to wait and see I guess......

    100% an Apple Store in the development but with 4 weeks to go and 8,000 men working at White City it's a tight schedule. However all the stores will be open on 30 October including the Apple Store.

    I will be working at Whity City, Westfield and it will be opening on time.

    All the big stores like Debenhams, House of Fraser, Next, Marks and Spencers etc. Have already started stocking up etc

    Smaller stores like JD Sports, Uniqlo, H&M will start stocking on Monday.

    So be assured it will open on time :D

    Hmm. Given the state of the place when I saw it a week ago I'll be staggered if it's safe for the public on the 30th.

    I went there this morning, back at work now. Will post up pics in a moment...

    Got the Apple T-shirt, was black and said :apple: White City on the front. The usual. Won't bother taking a pic as I'm sure you all know what they look like. Besides, I'm back at work now. It was pretty crap if I'm honest (the shirt), but my first Apple Store opening.

    There were long queues to get in, but it moved fairly quickly despite the attempts of queue-jumpers who were dealt with pretty quickly, it must be said.

    For those of you who have heard of/been to an Apple Store opening, they did the whole Apple "we've had too much sugar" thing. Though it did put a smile on my face. They lined up by the doors and yelled and 'whooped' as each person came in, saying "welcome" etc and throwing some high-fives. Some cameras present also being that the White-city thing is quite a big deal in the local area. Store was nice, not the biggest but laid out as per-usual.

    As an added bonus, well for me and not my girlfriend, the La Senza store had lots of lovely ladies in La Senza lingere posing outside, in the display booths and instore. They were stunning. Reminds me of stag party in Vegas... Happy times :p

    I was there too and got my Apple White City t-shirt. Lots of nice shiny Apple stuff. Sadly I missed the La Senza attractions :(
