  1. Ah, but is there one in El Centro? Yes… Hmmmm
    How about Wilmington? Yes….. Hmmmmm
    Or La Brea? NOPE – Well, you not total saturation, yet.
    When will La Brea have an  Store?

    Who knows – I live in Australia. ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”wink” style=”border:0;” /> I am waiting for the ones here to open (well, for now it is the one, but we are hoping)! Could use some decent Genius Dudes and Dudettes (G.O.D. = Genius On Duty) and willing and knowledgeable sales people.

    central to the issue is that no matter how many  Stores there are, there are not enough! As any line dweller of 1001 strong. How’d you like to miss out on the t-shirt by 1?

    mdn = central

  2. Capitalism rocks!

    If people don’t want Apple Stores (and feel free to insert Starbucks, Walmark , Whatever here) then don’t shop there, don’t apply for jobs there and they will fold. Except they don’t because they fulfill needs.
    In my case a Need for an Apple fix. When I enter the store and an employee asks if I need anything and I just say “I need to check in with the mother ship once in a while” and they smile and leave me be.

    Is it too early to line up for the iPhone? The commercials have so reinforced my desire for one.


  3. California already has their share of locations, and there are a lot of people and money in the other 49 states too. Not to even mention that California’s economy (mostly by their own doing) is a lot worse than that of many other states.
