I passed by an old Apple Store today. I used to pass by this store back when I was still in highschool. I used to admire the macs they had on display and always beg my parents to buy me one.. which they never did.
Surprisingly the store hasn't changed much.
It was freaky checking out the place from the outside. It's as if the shop was stuck in its own time-zone. The shop seems to have been closed ages ago. A thick layer of dust sits on top of everything. What struck me the most though were the Think Different banners. They're gorgeous and seeing them in the store window gathering dust and being unappreciated pissed me off. I tried looking for the shop number so I could call maybe the main office and ask if I could have the banners but I couldn't find anything, only a note saying that i should go to the 1st floor of the building for the Apple workshop. The main building door was locked though and the whole place seemed abandoned. Its as if they building was going to get demolished soon.. like the other old building in the area. It would be a real shame if they threw these banners away.
I contacted the "Apple Guru", the only person I trust in fixing my macs. He told me he used to work at the shop years ago and that mac dealer hasn't been doing good for ages. He gave me a number and a person I could contact about the banners. There is a holiday now so I will be contacting the guy once its over. I really want these banners!
