Apple opened its first two Retail Stores back in 2001, May 19th to be exact. One at Tyson’s Corner Mall McLean, Virginia, and the other at Glendale Galleria in Glendale California. Since then, Apple’s Retail Operations have kicked off and the company now owns and operates as many as 324 Retail Stores worldwide.
Apple love their secrets and this instance is no different.They have not yet to confirm anything officially, In celebration of their 10th retail anniversary, Apple stores are expected to hold “something big” on Thursday, at least according to BGR. May 19th is a day to mark down in your calendars.
The event is expected to be of very high importance, as the overnight shift will include personnel from the visuals staff, a manager, a business team member, a few Genius team members, one back-of-house employee, and a few generic Apple specialists. For a start, around 10 to 15 Apple Store staffers will work an overnight shift on Saturday night into Sunday morning in each store, the report claims. The staff working this shift will have their mobile phones taken from them and locked away.
Black curtains will be put on windows in Apple Stores to stop passers-by seeing what is going on, and the staff working the shift will have to sign a non-disclosure agreement with Apple.
The question is, what is Apple planning? What could May hold in store for us? A new product? New hardware?
