Yesterday I stopped by the Apple store in the The Mall to pick up some software for Peanuts iMac. I thought that 3:00 PM on a Wednesday afternoon was a good time to catch the store in a non busy mode.
I thought incorrectly. It was busy. I asked a manager if this was unusual.
“Actually this isn’t bad,” he told me, “normally we’re busier than this.”
“At this time of day, in the middle of week?”
Even without the recession, any retailer would be happy to have this kind of traffic at anytime, let alone the middle of the day in the middle of the week.
