For most people, the best and most convenient method for purchasing Apple goods will be to fire up the PC, head down to Apple's online store and go trigger happy. However, as far as myths are concerned, Friday the Thirteenth may just be the lucky day for those who feel the need to get a proper hands-on with Apple's products before committing to a purchase. And today is the day Nubox opens yet another new Apple Premium Reseller store at Junction 8 Shopping Centre in Bishan. So who says heartlanders never get the good stuff?
Forget all those myths about Friday the 13th being the most unlucky day on the calendar year.
As far as local Apple fans are concerned, this year's 'unlucky day' will probably go down in history as one of the most eventful and luckiest days for them, especially if they happened to be present at the Junction 8 Shopping Centre in Bishan at noon time. And no, it is not because El Jobso suddenly showed up in Junction 8 for a shopping trip (although that would really be impressive); rather it is due to the fact that heartlanders situated in Bishan will now have access to a new Apple Premium Reseller store in theshopping centre that was officially opened by Nubox today.
As [email protected] 8's Premium Reseller status suggests, the store will offer the complete range of Apple-branded products for customers to try and purchase. This includes Apple's entire Mac computer lineup (including the overpowered Mac Pros), along with the full range of Apple-branded consumer electronics devices like the iPhone and iPod digital audio players. And yes, that includes the drool-worthy iPads that everyone has been fighting for.
Don't worry; we did not forget about the iPads
And if you were wondering how much of a crowd a new Apple store can attract…well, these pictures tell it all.
Remember what we spoke about earlier about this year's Friday the Thirteenth being the luckiest day for Apple fans in Bishan? Well, that 'luck' of theirs is not limited to merely having a new Apple Premium Reseller store opening at a convenient location. As it turns out, Nubox has also lined up a number of in-store promotions for its customers from today till Sunday. During this promotional period, those who purchase a new Macbook can walk away with a Speck case, a laptop palm rest protector and a keyboard protector worth S$143, while the first 30 customers to do so will get an additional Microsoft Arc Mouse worth S$89 thrown into the mix. In addition, those who choose to purchase iPods from [email protected] 8 during the promotional period will get a free cleaning cloth, earphones and AC adaptor. Last but not least, selected accessories will be up for grabs at heavily discounted prices as well.
If that has caught your interest, [email protected] 8 can be found on Level 1 of the Junction 8 Shopping Centre, #1-10/11.
