Well, if you read the previous post, you know that I was one of the first dozen people to enter the new Saint Louis West County Apple Store. The West County Apple Store is located on the second floor of the newly reopened Westfield Shoppingtown West County (otherwise known as the Holy Spirit mall due to the fact that the mall’s logo is a giant white dove). I left my apartment at 7:30 AM and arrived in front of the Apple Store at about 7:55 AM. I took my seat in the line which was forming along the front of a store still under construction and began reading in the company of my fellow Mac Addicts, many of whom had their laptops out and were connected to the net through the Apple Store’s Airport base station.

It was pretty amusing watching people walk by as the line grew and stretched down beyond at least 4 other storefronts. It was especially funny when people would ask one of us near the front of the line what the line was for. Since the mall just opened yesterday and is having special attractions all weekend, I guess the passers-by figured that with the line as long as it was, they must be missing something good. However, when one of us informed them that it was the line for the grand opening of the Apple Store and the only special was that the first 1000 people got free t-shirts, they would usually get a stupefied look on their face, respond with a simple, “oh”, and then continue on their way.
