Yesterday I crowned Apple the new king of retail when it was revealed that the company’s retail stores brought in more annual sales per square foot than any other retailer including heavyweights like Best Buy, Neiman Marcus and Tiffany & Co.
In addition to Apple’s impressive sales per square foot it’s also worth noting that Apple currently holds the top spot in three categories at Amazon.com: MP3 players, notebooks and desktops.

apple-store-ac-line.jpgWe arrived the at the grand opening of the new Apple retail store in in Atlantic City, NJ at around 10 a.m. for an 11 a.m. opening. There were only about 40 people in line. By 10:30 a.m. there were over 400 people in line and it was building fast. There was a definite herd mentality in play here, people were willing to line up because they heard that someone was “giving something away.”
apple-store-ac-repair.jpgOnce inside I was able to get a quick appointment with a Genius to look at the soggy space bar on my MacBook Pro’s keyboard. The Genius (Patrick) quickly hooked me up and ordered a replacement and told me he’d call me when it came it. I should have brought the cranky iBook G3 12-inch that is sitting on my desk… Note to self…
We’ll I’m off to snag one of the 1000 t-shirts, rumor is that there are less than 500 left. Enjoy the pictures.

Pre-Opening (back in July) and today’s Grand Opening – posted live from the Genius Bar.

New Apple Store in the Hotbed of the “Three Cs?”

First off, the “Three Cs”, for the uninitiated, are conservatism, Christianity and Chevy Suburbans. This bedroom community of Los Angeles with about 110,000 residents has historically been a haven for police and firefighters of Los Angeles. It is located right next door to L.A., but Simi Valley is in fact in Ventura County. Until recently, Simi Valley often earned the “safest city (with populations over 100K people) in America” title until the last year or so when a few murders spoiled the record. Prior to those, it was common for Simi to not have any homicides during a year.

Although it’s not in center city, Apple is opening its first retail store in Philadelphia proper this weekend. The store is located in Surburban Square in Ardmore, PA a community of approximately 13,000 residents located in the Main Line section of the city 10 miles west of Philadelphia.

Here I was just complaining that Apple hasn’t opened a store in Center City Philadelphia, and what do I find in my inbox? An announcement of the grand opening of Apple’s newest store, Suburban Square in Ardmore, PA (which is just outside of Philadelphia). The fun begins at 10am this Saturday, and as usual Apple will be raffling stuff away a ‘Digital Lifestyle Collection…’
