“Suzanne Rickles had an easy enough plan in mind Saturday – buy a computer at the Apple store opening that day at The Summit,” Marie Leech reports for The Birmingham News.
“She got there at 10:15 a.m., just 15 minutes after the store opened, thinking she would walk right in,” Leech reports. “Not quite.”
“‘I never thought in a million years it would be like this,’ she said, staring at the backs of at least 1,000 heads in line waiting to get into the store,” Leech reports.
Leech reports, “The line, wrapped all the way around the sidewalks at The Summit, was hours long. Security guards had the areas roped off, much like the lines for the Georgia Cyclone at Six Flags.”
Leech reports, “Paul Barnes. who lives in Cambridge, England, but is in Alabama visiting friends. ‘I went to the grand opening of Apple in Rome, Italy, so I’m not surprised about the line at all. It’s like a cult for a lot of Mac users. A lot of them are freaks, if you really want to know the truth.'”
