    Yeah, well how far do you have to travel to get to one? .....because I have to go 140 fucking miles.

    ...........which is actually good because i'd be running to the pawn shop every week to sell my shit if I lived by one.

    I'd go from a leather couch and a big screen plasma ...... to a blanket, a SPOOL, and a MBP hooked to an external 30 inch cinema.

    Sometimes, I like ordering it online because when the Fedex guy brings it, it feels like Christmas morning... opening up new stuff. :mamoru:

    Each store has it's varying operating hours. Depending upon where one lives (ie., a large city vs. Nowhere, Kansas) the store can remain open anywhere between 8-11 PM.

    I know for the Apple Store along the 'Magnificant Mile' in Chicago it closes at like 9 PM. I should know, since I'm going to buy my MBP there in October when I get all my funds together (paying extra for shipping vs. pre-paid college CTA pass... I'll deal with the smell of urine on the trains for 35 minutes).

    Dammit. It should be 10pm everywhere, equal access man!

    I'd shop at the malls in NY until 10pm but when I moved back home in MI after 5 years, I found out that the malls here close at 9pm. :hsugh:

    I was gonna call you to come with, but then I looked at the store hours. :o


    I don't understand why the store in Oak Brook isn't open until 10, like the rest of the stores in that goddamn mall.

    Tvan:

    It's possible that the Oak Brook store has a different contract deal with the mall, giving them the ability to close the Apple store prior to the mall's closing. If the store is a large store and not just a small Apple outlet store this could strengthen my idea of the contract deal; most large stores (Kohls's, Carson Piere Scott, etc.) often operate on their won timetable and not the mall's timetable. I know most malls by me close at around 9 PM on most nights, with the large stores remaining open until 10 PM on most nights.
