As someone else said, my experience was quite different as well in July 2013. The store was quite busy for a Tuesday morning.Pretty much. It's not as if Apple is a tourist attraction. You can't go and tour the place. Seems silly to drive all the way there simply for a t-shirt.
I've grabbed a thing or two from their store (bring an employee friend with and use their discount) when there for meetings with the iOS or security teams, or when coming to use their test labs. It's pretty empty most of the time.
It is mostly employees. when I worked for Apple we got extra excited to get to go work in Cupertino so we could buy from the company store. Tourists go too though.No anyone can go. they Sell T-Shirts, Jumpers, Pens and Notepads. Official Apple stuff that you can't buy anywhere else. I suspect there will be some new things.
I went 2 days before it shut and bought a load of sale stuff. But have to say quality of some of the clothes was not up to Apple standards. Some was great though.
For my 50th, I went to Vegas. Drank, gambled, saw shows, lots of strippers, fire full automatic weapons and even hot tub jumped with a bunch of girls from NZ. Be funny if you were from Christchurch like those Kiwi babes.Visited there for my 50th birthday (all the way from NZ).
It's not bad looking, but I was definitely a little disappointed. Being the company store, it feels more like an outdated shopping mall store. They've gone away from the black and wood motif years ago.I am looking forward to the mothership company store. That should blow the socks off this one. And this one looks nice.
The Apple company store Coffee Mug will revolutionise the way you drink caffeinated beverages. You used to only be able to drink Apple brand coffee in it, but now you can drink any brand of coffee. It's still difficult to drink tea with it.Great, a 16oz cup is exactly what I'm looking for.
What I don't understand is why they're bothering to renovate the place now. If they're planning to relocate the whole campus to the new building, how much use are they going to get out of this renovated space? 2-3 years? I was in there not long ago and the place didn't appear in desperate need of renovation... I think it could have made it.I talked to the store staff before they closed down to ask them if they where going to be moving The Company Store in to the new mothership building and they said no.
