Apple Comes to Staten Island!

I'll try to visit the day after opening.

VIA Mac Minute

Apple today announced that it plans to open a retail store in Staten Island, New York on Saturday, October 15, 2005. The store is located at 2655 Richmond Ave. Apple plans the Grand Opening for the public at 10:00 a.m. The company has also said that the first 1000 people to visit the Apple store receive a free Apple T-shirt.

Of course, the only true reason I want to visit is this:

In addition, visitors can enter the Grand Opening Sweepstakes for a chance to win a Digital Lifestyle Collection* valued at $2350. No purchase is necessary and entries will be accepted from October 15th through November 15th.

* VIA The Mac Observer:

The Digital Lifestyle Collection inludes a 17-inch iMac, iPod nano, a Canon Powershot SD300 digital camera, a Canon ZR100 digital camcorder, and an Epson Stylus R200 printer.

Hmmm, maybe I'll wait till my visit to finally purchase some much needed hardware.
