Glass floors! Look up, boys! Look UP!
We need an Apple store in POUGHKEEPSIE,N.Y. please! We’re 2 hours away from any Apple store, that’s not right….
I feel your pain, Tommy, but here in Philadelphia (birthplace of democracy, fifth largest US city, yada yada) we still don’t have one. There’s three in the burbs, but come on, when do we get a downtown store?
” . . . when do we get a downtown store?”
Probably when the shooting subsides.
Tommyr – the store in White Plains is only 45 minutes away, a nice scenic drive down the Taconic.
Phooey! I want one closer! There’s a lot of Mac users up here, lots of college kids using them too.

Actually Apple had planned on opening a store there,
But they pulled the plug when they realized that
There was no way in hell they could fit POUGHKEEPSIE,N.Y.

LOL! Well, make the lettering smaller then! We’d be o.k. with that!
I was thinking the same thing, Winston.
Maybe a spot in South Street, or close to City Hall? There’s not much shooting in downtown Philly. It’s the areas surrounding downtown (North Philly, South Philly, etc..) where most of the shootings take place.
Frankly, I think it’s overdue to get one in Philly. Not all of us want to drive an hour to King Of Prussia or pay tolls to go to Jersey
I went the opening, and waiting on line for 4 hours only to go in and be told there is no public bathroom. Apple how do you design a store you want people to stay in and take classes at without offering them a bathroom! I will never go back to that one. I’ll stick with SoHo.
I wish they would put one in Queens, theres a huge new mall in Glendale with plenty of space (hint hint)
I know! No bathroom at the West 14th Street (NYC) Apple Store. How stupid is that? We waited in line for 4 1/2 hours to find out that they forgot to put a bathroom in the store. It should be against the law to have a store that enormous and not give the customers a bathroom. What poor planning! I’m sure they’re a pain to keep clean but hey, that’s the cost of doing business in Manhattan.
