    and much needed!

    The Portland area is a HUGE huge market for Apple... Do you guys know how many designers live here??? Every store I go here is always packed with people! Portland is becoming the next San Francisco quick!

    Corrections and Screams.

    The "Bridgeport Villaige" is actually the 2nd one in Portland. The order was like this:

    1. Washington Square 2. Bridgeport Villaige 3. Pioneer Place

    Which in my opinion was reverse practicality - should have started with Pioneer Place, and not even bothered with the Washington Square.

    My complaints - and I am really glad they opened stores, don't get me wrong - is thet the Bridgeport and Washington Square are too close to eachother, and if they DO open one on NW 23 (while a cool location) it is WAY too close to the downtown Pioneer Place.

    What, is Apple becoming Starbucks?

    I mean come on, there is not ONE Apple store in New Mexico (and almost zero independant Apple based retailers) but Portland gets 4 spaced too close together, a town which we have many good independant Apple retailers (like the Mac store, MacForce, PowerMacPac, PowerMAX, and a couple others).

    They should close the Washington Square location, and open one farther on the west side - like Streets of Tanasbourne - or somewhere like that.

    And start focusing on the places where people CAN'T GET APPLE, like New Mexico, and if the other posters are right - Maine...

    What about Eugene, Oregon? Why 4 in portland and none in Eugene?

    Hmmmm....

    Only a week?

    I knew about our local stores months in advance, especially the large one. It was in a story in the paper about a newly rebuilt mall here. Sure enough, when it opened, there was a store.

    More hype and the press falls for it.
