Inside the 5th Ave Store & some retail tidbits


We're inside the 5th Avenue store and the fun continues, with stacks of iPad boxes on the counters, plenty of cases and accessories... and customers, customers, more customers. Gallery below.

Some things we know now re. the retail situation:

  • Yes, there was an all-hands call this morning, at least here at 5th Ave.
  • No, there wasn't a ban on employees bringing their iPhones with them, as far as we can tell.
  • Yes, the retail staff didn't get to touch iPads until this morning, so for the first couple of hours they will be catching up.
  • Yes, they are carrying small blue chamois cloths to polish fingerprints off of the display units. Frequently.
