“The whole street will benefit from it financially,” said Manfred Kroening, co-owner of Bette’s Oceanview Diner, a place we spend some of our weekend mornings, of the Apple store opening 1823 Fourth Street, Berkeley CA. Sometimes we go to 4th street to buy our coffee from Pete's
This is great for all the Apple fans in Berkeley as it certainly make it easier to grab what ever hyped up of or generally good stuff from Apple.
The store will be open to public on August 20th and first 1000 customers will get a commemorative t-shirt.
I generally do not like the atmosphere of Apple stores, high pressure 20 something stores, I just go there with my list in hand, grab what I want and leave. But now I think UC Berkeley students have a place to kill their time. Oh wait with the amount they are paying for tuition now, they would not have any money left to spend so it will have to be Berkeley High students.
Good luck Apple and welcome to our 'hood.
