Apple will open its newest retail store at the Staten Island Mall in Staten Island, New York on Saturday, October 15, 2005. The store is scheduled to open at 10:00 AM ET. The new Apple Store is located on the second floor of the mall, near the Disney Store.
The first 1,000 visitors in the door get a free t-shirt to commemorate their visit. New visitors to the store can also enter the Grand Opening Sweepstakes, which awards a 17-inch iMac G5, iPod nano, Canon PowerShot SD300 camera, ZR100 camcorder and Epson Stylus R200 to one winner.
Workshops and other events have been scheduled throughout the week; visit the Staten Island store’s Web page for more details.
In addition to the “Genius Bar” area for helping users with technical questions about their Macs, the new Staten Island store features “The Studio,” a spot where Apple “Creatives” can help Mac users get the most of their Macs for creative endeavors like digital photography, moviemaking, music and more.
