One millionth visitor
Apple's Fifth Avenue New York City retail store honored its one millionth visitor with gifts as the surprised customer entered the underground location. The announcement comes just under four months after the store's grand opening. Elizabeth Rodriguez descended the glass staircase at 2:00 p.m. on September 9th and was met by store employees. Rodriguez received a MacBook, an iPod Hi-Fi, and an Apple ProCare membership. The company's Fifth Avenue store hosted an average of 8,772 visitors per day in its first 114 days, as opposed to other stores in the chain which averaged 8,956 visitors per week during the last quarter, according to ifoAppleStore.
