I went to Buffalo over this Victoria Day long weekend. It was only the second time I’ve set foot on American soil ever. The first time was when I was very young; the most prominent memory I had of that trip was of someone at a gas station asking us where the heck Prince Edward Island was.
I was at the Walden Galleria in Buffalo and saw several big-name stores I’ve only heard about – Macy’s, JCPenny, Lord & Taylor. As well, there was an Apple Store there. I took the opportunity to be creepy and took a couple pictures of the place.
First impressions were good. The store looked a lot roomier than the single-aisle layout of the Yorkdale store.
Apple’s really pushing the Apple TV product. The front window was adorned with a flat panel LCD showing off a demo of the product.
On the side of the store, there’s a big ad for the Apple TV – If it’s on iTunes, it’s on TV – apparently.
There’s a whole wall dedicated to Apple TVs. You can get some hands-on time with them and there’s, again, several flat panel LCDs set up there.
A personal favorite of any Apple Store is the Power Mac with a 30″ LCD. The picture doesn’t do it justice. It’s absolutely gigantic. You practically have to swivel your head to see from edge to edge, depending on how close you are.
And of course the Genius Bar.
Fun stuff. Pics brought to you courtesy of the K790a.
