The store is open 24 hours just in case you suddenly get the urge to buy an Apple product at 3:00 AM

Fifth Avenue in New York City now has an interesting new edition -- an Apple store that is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.  Before the grand opening that occurred at 6PM on Friday evening, several hundred people camped outside the store to be the first ones inside.  The new Apple store has a glass cube entrance and has almost 300 employees on-hand to answer questions and help customers, regardless of what time it is.  The store will have more than 100 Macs and around 200 iPod MP3 players for potential customers to drool over.  The San Francisco Chronicle reports:

“We opened our first New York store in SoHo in 2002, and it has been successful beyond our dreams. Now we’re thrilled to open our second New York store on Fifth Avenue,” said Apple CEOSteve Jobs. “With outstanding service and an amazing location open 24 hours a day, we think the Apple Store Fifth Avenue is going to be a favorite destination for New Yorkers and people around the world.”

Apple announced the store several months ago.  The store is defined by its 30 foot glass cube in front of the store.
