Apple will open a retail store in Walnut Creek, California, on Saturday, July 12. The grand opening will be held from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
To celebrate the grand opening, Apple is featuring a week of special events. A series of free educational presentations, demonstrations and workshops are scheduled.

The first 1,000 visitors will get a free Apple T-shirt.
