“It was a great night to be an Apple fan,” Christine McConville reports for The Boston Herald. “Seconds after a cheering mob of Apple employees threw open the glass doors at the nation’s largest Apple Store [815 Boylston Street, Boston, Massachusetts], awestruck fans ran inside to thundering applause.”
“As they spiraled up a glass staircase, the rock star treatment continued,” McConville reports.
“There was Red Sox catcher Jason Varitek chatting nonchalantly with a couple of Apple guys,” McConville reports. “And on the next level, Sox players Manny Delcarmen and Coco Crisp drew as many stares as Apple’s lightest-ever laptop computers.”
“By 6pm, when the store opened, [there were] 1,000 Apple fans waiting in a line that snaked down Boylston and along Fairfield,” McConville reports. “To passersby, the frenzy was baffling. Many stopped and stared at cheering workers in Apples’ colorfulT-shirts.”
