Exclusive pics of the Shanghai China Apple store grand opening
Above: The first guy in line.
True to his word, faithful Macenstein reader Min has returned with pics of the Shanghai China Apple store grand opening, as well as his take on the festivities. Enjoy!
I got there at 7am. There were already hundreds of people waiting in line. By the time at 11:30am, there were thousands of people in the queue! And lots of reporters on the site. It’s pretty hot day, store workers were giving out free water to the waiting customers. A few lucky people got apple logo umbrella. I am one of them. These umbrella’s body are made form fiberglass! Pretty cool stuff. I wish they could make some limited edition fiberglass back iPhone 4. The first 5000 customers also get a free T-shirt. I got one, haha!
The store is huge! I think it’s bigger than the one in New York. By the way, there is a guy and his wife (or girlfriend) camped at the store 2 days before the opening. He is the first customer got into the store. There is a photo of him in the set (he is the guy with the Steve Jobs’ flag in one of the photos).
