Not only did Atlanta’s Apple retail store do big business during Georgia’s tax holiday, the Apple store in Durham also fared well during a similar period (last Friday through Sunday) in North Carolina.
In fact, the store was jammed with lines running out the doors all day, Robert Stein, creator director of Sports Endeavors in Hillsborough, NC, told MacCentral. The store even ran out of certain items at various times throughout the weekend and got “relief shipments” through Saturday. The busiest day by far was Friday, followed by Saturday and Sunday, respectively.
David Moffat of Student Information Services, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill feels there’s a pent-up (by the economy) demand for Macs.
