    Apple Store Today

    Just returned from the Apple store in the Westchester Mall (White Plains, NY). Truly stunning and amazing. We bought an iPad, we were in there for about 45 minutes. It was wall-to-wall. I counted 328 people in the store. As we walked the mall, I did not see another store with more than 8 - 10 people in it.

    Folks, we are witnessing perhaps a once-in-a-lifetime company at work here. I am 51 years old and never, ever have I seen a retail store that is packed every single time I have ever looked into one of their stores. I work in Manhattan and walk by three Apple stores every day. Wall-to-wall, every minute of every day.

    Let the naysayers say what they will, this company is on fire and will be for the forseeable future. You can read a message board all day long and watch CNBC and read the papers. But if you really want to see what this company is up to, visit the stores folks. The talking heads are all talking for their own benefit (most are trying to bring the stock down to make money going down and then up again - - remember "Trading Places?" Wall Street #$%$ are nothing but bookies in nice offices).

    Onward and upward Apple!

    • What, I thought Apple was doomed...LOL. I can't believe the nonsense people say about Apple going down. Every time I go to an Apple store it's packed. AAPL is a SOLID investment!

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • We went to apple store in century city at 10:30 am, the store was unbelievably packed, over 100 people. The mall opened at 10 am and many other stores had 1-5 people tops. Apple is amazing and making insane money.

      I got the top of the line iPad mini and was terribly happy. Once apple starts selling the iphone5 in china, forget about it!!!

      Range is 470-900 easy. After earnings in January or April stock will absolutely take off.

      Strong buy

    • I attempted to buy an ipad mini 32 gig today at the South Hills Village Mall Apple store, (Pittsburgh suburb) they were sold out of the 16 and 32 gig mini's. I drove to the nearby Best Buy to make my purchase, same story. The Best Buy geek said that they get five delivery's of ipads per week but the only way I could expect to get my hands on one was to put a fifty dollar deposit down today and expect to get one next Thursday, so that's what I did.

      By the way the Apple store was wall to wall shoppers, and the Best Buy had a crowd around the Apple tablet display, the Android and Kindle displays were wide open.

    • Great post and thanks for reporting what we all know. Apple is selling products hand over fist. I went into a store in Raleigh last week and the guy said to me who worked there " he's just never seen this many people buying things at this pace". I was punch drunk. It was 10:15 and the place was packed wall to wall. Honestly, I could see people not buying apple products at these stores because of the long waits. Wait, that will be the next thing CNBC will harp on, " that Tim Cook didn't have enough employees at the retail store" I can see it now..

      Sentiment: Strong Buy
