Grand Opening of Apple Store Manchester

The Apple Store Manchester Arndale will open to the public on Saturday, September 30, 2006 at 9:00 a.m. BST.

I love Apple Store openings, they make me tingle inside and I do not mind admitting that when I visit my local the hours just seem to fly past, even if my wallet stays in my pocket (which it does not very often). So it gives me great pleasure to bring you this news and to urge you, if you can make it down to the Arndale Centre in Manchester then you are guaranteed a great day.

From the press release:
At the Apple Store, knowledgeable salespeople are available to help customers learn about all the latest products from Apple including the all-new iPod® nano featuring a new aluminium body, 24 hours of battery life and more than twice the music capacity at the same price as the previous generation, and the new iPod with a brighter and more vibrant colour display perfect for watching music videos and viewing photos and album art. The hands-on Apple Store experience provides visitors with a chance to test-drive Apple’s entire product line including the critically acclaimed iMac® and MacBook™, featuring Intel processors, a built-in iSight™ camera and the breakthrough Front Row media experience.
