    you got that right!

    this is definitely going to impact the revenue of other apple stores in the area (kop and s. jersey locations come to mind). of course, apple's probably factored this into their plan already.

    I dont think Apple cares either way. a sale is a sale to them if it be in NJ or deleware! they just might have to do some transfering between stores, but that would be about it. =)

    I can't wait

    The KOP and Marlton stores were about 45 mins - 1hour away. DE is about 20 minutes for me and where I do all of my shopping. I think that it will hurt the resellers that are already established in DE more so than the Apple Stores in PA or NJ. Up to this point, I bought all of my products at either CompUSA, which still has a "store within a store" or DE Computer Exchange, which is an Apple only Store. I don't think I would even consider driving an hour other than to be there for the opening.

    Speaking of openings, does anyone else think that there should be more than 100 t-shirts? I thought the KOP and Sagemore stores had 500 or 1000. I don't want to get up at 7am to go stand in line for 2 hours to be sure I get a shirt.
