At this point when the Apple store closes, its like, yeah… you wont be open for a few hours. But really, do they need to take all their stores off at once? No way jose, they do it as marketing.
It s a good trick really, it gets people asking, wondering, wanting to look around and maybe even bring it up to other people. Best of all when they are up again, it is up t the web surfer to find things out for theirselves, which means more apple hits and likely more Apple sales. Oh what will the day bring?
