It’s not much of a surprise to Manhattanites (or the folks who have been enjoying their leaked photos for weeks), but Apple has officially announced the opening of its latest retail store location in Grand Central Station, New York City’s fifth such venue. “Just in time for the holidays,” the new location will open its doors at 10am EST this Friday, December 9.
Earlier this morning, we headed out to the Apple Store on Stockton Street in downtown San Francisco to check out all the hubbub surrounding the iPhone 4. With the reports from Twitter and Facebook that the lines were gargantuan, we had to check it out for ourselves. When we got to the store an hour before launch, the line extended around the block, all the way to the street that is actually parallel to that of the Apple Store. Hopefully, the faithful patrons that were waiting in the cold, frigid, San Francisco summer weather won't go home empty handed.
