There is something amazing about going into an Apple Store, and I don’t mean this online one, but going to one in person. I don’t know if it’s the clean, slick look. If it’s thek customer service. I don’t know if it’s all the gadgets that consume me, and make me envy like no other. Yes, walking into an Apple Store is a quick step to breaking a commandment, and coveting those things that others have. I’m not saying it’s a good thing, but that’s what happens when I go in there.
I went in last night to the Apple Store in Pasadena, CA, on Colorado Blvd. in Old Town, and it was so packed. So packed that I wasn’t able to get an appointment last night to get a new key for my computer. So I went back in today. And it is quite an experience. It’s more than just a store, but it is an event. You don’t go in just to purchase something, but rather to browse, to talk with others, to learn from a seminary about i-Tunes, or podcasts, etc.
I walked out after about 30 minutes after getting a new key, and talking with some help. I just had the feeling that there is a lot of community in that store, and that a lot of people go in there beyond just wanting to buy things. But rather to talk with others, learn in a group environment, etc.
I’m rambling, but there is just something about that store. Am I the only one who feels this way, or do you have the same experience when you go in?
