Considering the hoopla that normally surrounds the opening of an Apple Inc. retail store, it was a little surprising that more was not being made about the opening of the newest store at The Summit besides the buzz in the local blogosphere (especially Jeremy).

Accredited journalists will be allowed to preview the new store beginning at 9 a.m., with the new business opening to the general public at 10 a.m. The first 1,000 people who visit the new store will receive an Apple T-shirt and all that visit the store before 4 p.m. Sunday will be able to enter the Grand Opening Sweepstakes, with the grand prize including a black 12 inch 2.0GHz Intel Duo MacBook, one-year membership to ProCare and a 4GB silver iPod nano among other things. Contest details are available by clicking here.
