The Apple Retail Store is the best place to learn about all the latest products from Apple including the all-new iPod nano with video playback and the widescreen iPod touch, as well as the critically-acclaimed iMac line featuring the latest Intel Core 2 Duo processors and 20- and 24-inch widescreen displays. The hands-on Apple Retail Store experience gives customers a chance to test-drive Apple’s entire product line including the iPhone which combines three devices into one: a mobile phone, a widescreen iPod, and a mobile Internet device based on Apple’s revolutionary multi-touch interface and innovative software that allows users to control iPhone with just a tap, flick or pinch of their fingers.

Every Apple Retail Store offers personal training through Apple’s new One to One program with in-depth sessions on a wide range of topics, from getting started with a Mac or iPod to advancing your moviemaking or digital photography skills.

  1. Lucky me I live in Baton Rouge and if I can swing it I’m gonna try my darnedest to make it there Thursday! ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”wink” style=”border:0;” /> It’ll be my 1st Apple Store visit period and of course my 1st Grand Opening. I’d love to pick up a t-shirt for sure but I wonder if they still give away the really good stuff like MacBooks and iPods & such?
    I’ve never been to the Best Buy to see their Apple store/section but now I wouldn’t need to. I just wonder if BB even offers anything like the Apple stores do as far as training both free and the One on One? I’m very interested in the 1-on-1 personally and whatever else they have offered.

  2. I wish I know what and if there will be an assortment of goodies besides the t-shirt. Or if there’s a sweepstakes that you can enter after grand opening day. Right now it looks like I won’t be able to go and that sux. LSS/Long Story Short: I need transportation since I can’t drive my own vehicle, a stick shift, due to surgery on my left foot. 🙁 Oh well, maybe someone out there will post a few pics and any pertinent information. Maybe I’m not missing much. 😐 I suppose if this store is a success, which I’m sure it will be, maybe I’ll attend the next closest one in the near future. I thought this would be an ideal time to go since I’m assuming the line will be short, the initial crowd will be minimal due to the odd day Thursday, no holiday, I’m not working right now and short notice.
