All stores will have grand opening festivities including free t-shirts to the first 1,000 visitors; the Columbia and Providence stores feature a Grand Opening Sweepstakes that will award one winner a Digital Lifestyle Collection that includes a MacBook, one-year membership to ProCare, silver iPod nano, an iPod Hi-Fi, one-year .Mac membership, iWork and an AppleCare protection plan. What’s more, Apple will award 10 First Prize winners a one-year ProCare membership. The Omaha store also has a Grand Opening Sweepstakes, but the awards are different.
