Apple Store Kahala, located in the Kahala Mall in Honolulu, Hawaii, celebrated their grand opening on Saturday, February 10th.
Todd Ogasawara reports for Mac DevCenter, “The store was scheduled to open at 10am. I arrived about 8:10am to find about 150 people already ahead of me. I heard (but did not verify) that the first person in line arrived at 3am (a bit too early for me).”
Ogasawara reports, “The crowd started building quickly and it seems the mall’s security team was not expecting the speed at which the line was growing. We were moved around a bit and security started placing poles with rope rails to keep the walkways clear. I’ll guess there were at least 400 to 500 people in line before the doors opened at 10am.
Apple kept the crowd (at least the segments that could see the store) entertained with a group providing Hawaiian chants, Hula, and a Hawaiian Blessing of the store.”
