The new Apple store that will be opening tomorrow will never shut it's doors. This means that it will be open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year. This is amazing!!!!

The shop looks great inside and it is huge, take a look:

Thats insane, I wish they would do that where I live. I know there have been plenty of times where I could have used an apple store late at night, but I know this type of thing will never happen in Oklahoma.

the better question is how many employees would @$%& their pants if somebody came in and bought a 2,000 powermac at 230am. From what I read on that link and two otehrs, it seems like it'll function more as like a wireless hangout or study hall (more so than a store) that late/early.

Maybe if people are like working on a project that they need finished and something breaks, they can replace it. Nobody buys a PM that early in the morning.


That store is huge though. Bigger than Apple Store: Arden Fair Mall. HUGE. :closed:

It's true, for me atleast, mainly because I dont go to bars. Pretty much everything closes at 9 except for restaurants, bars, and pool halls. The pool halls are full of cigarette smoke so I try to stay away.

What would be awesome about having a store thats open 24/7, when new products come out you could start selling them at midnight and have big parties for the new product.
