    Was an excellent experience this morning, arriving just after 9 a.m.
    The staff welcoming each customer individually into the store with cheering was a unique touch. The store-specific commemorative t-shirts are fantastic, too.

    The store itself is incredibly impressive. I'm sure it exceeded many expectations.

    Well done, Apple.

    Well to be fair, it wasn't supposed to be. However in surveying the impact the Apple Store has on surrounding traders, and with them being the most direct competitor, I had to check it out. Perhaps I wandered in at an odd time of the day, but it didn't exactly look promising. Mind you, I normally stop by whenever I'm in the mall and it hasn't exactly ever been a hive of activity. At least that's from what I can see.

    This kind of store opening affects me directly as well, I'm a service technician in the reseller network within a reasonable radius to the Adelaide CBD and the whispers around the traps from Apple fans, the general public and press alike suggest that I may not be for much longer. So it's bittersweet in a way. It's a shame, but that's the reality of it. You accept it and move forward, and I'm still just as excited by the Apple Store opening as anyone else. Hell, I went back in there twice for good measure.

    I arrived just before 10am and seeing the crowd already there was concerned just how long I might have to wait to get inside (parking meter clicking over), so found a place in the secondary queue further along the Mall and was pleasantly surprised that I was being welcomed with cheers and Hi-5s within about 20 minutes. I guess the general layout is pretty much the same as Apple Stores elsewhere in Australia but I was told by boasting staff Adelaide had more elaborate signage and presentation. The huge crowd inside still got quick access to whatever they wanted. I think the T-shirt handout must have exceeded the promised 1000. Was again welcomed and asked whether I needed help at least twice so well done Apple.
