Apple’s Grand Central Station Store Opens To Big Crowds

Yesterday saw the newest Apple Store open at New York’s Grand Central Station to a grand reception from Apple followers. The 23,000 square foot location is expected to generate a revenue in the region of $100 million in a year, out of of which nothing is going to be shared with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority(MTA) in contrast to most of Apple’s neighbors who have a revenue sharing deal with the agency. In addition to this the main point of criticism is the addition of $60 a square foot lease price that Apple is paying for the prime location, which is the reason why the entire deal has come under intense scrutiny.

The store opened at 10am Eastern time as a large crowd of New Yorkers came to do some holiday shopping as can be seen in the image above. The store opened to a huge crowd which many of the onlookers termed as “Chaotic”. Unlike the 24 hour Apple Store on 5th Avenue, this store shuts at 9pm on weeknights and 7pm on Saturday and 6pm on Sunday. With the large crowd at the Grand Opening and the rush of holiday shopping, those working at the new Apple Store are in for a some tiring days this holiday season.

Apple Announces 12 Days Of Free Apps for Christmas! *Only For Europe & Canada

Gearing up for the holiday season, Apple has continued its annual tradition when it launched its 12 Days of Christmas app in preparation for its annual holiday promotion offering free songs, music videos, apps and books to residents of parts of Europe and Canada.

The 12 Days of Christmas offers are not available to U.S.-based customers, however, the app is available in the U.K. App Store and is reported to be on its way to the Canada App Store soon. A few select countries in Europe are also scheduled to participate in the promotion.

The 12 days will be from Dec. 26 to Jan. 6, with new gifts available each day. Apple has made it an yearly affair for several years now.

Gifts from last year’s 12 Days of Christmas deals in Canada included “some episodes of The Big Bang Theory, a Christmas music sampler EP, a best-selling book by a Canadian author, some episodes of Mad Men, an iTunes Live EP from Bedouin Soundclash, music videos and songs from Kings of Leon and Johnny Reid, the movie One Week and two apps, Diner Dash and Fishing Kings,” MacNN notes.

People who are ineligible for the 12 Days promotion need not be sad because, they have been invited to visit the iTunes page on Apple’s website on Boxing Day (Dec. 26) to receive a special gift for their computers.
