Palm Beach Gardens Apple Store Closes Due to Flooding

| News

The Apple Store in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida closed Wednesday evening due to flooding. While phone calls to The Gardens Mall Apple Store location went unanswered, staff at the mall’s office confirmed that the Apple Store was closed, characterizing it as, “wet.”

The Mac Observer was alerted to the closure after pro drummer Daniel East tweeted that a water main had flooded the location. There was no estimate as to when the location would reopen, but Apple is planning an iPad launch event at all its U.S. Apple Store locations on April 3rd.

Intrepid undercover investigative reporter Jeff Gamet assisted with this article.

I was there today and I snapped a photo of the outside of the store, I’ve posted a link to the photo. The inside was soaked! Computers were covered and the posters were being torn off the walls. The water leak closed neighboring stores as well. Even the outside of the store was dripping water. http://i612.photobucket.com/albums/tt206/iPatxx/80337831.jpg

An airconditioning tank holding 800 gallons burst.  Store probably wont reopen for awhile

“Wet"seems like a bit of an understatement.

Yeah, Jeff and I were laughing when we were told that, Geoduck, which is why we included it in the story. smile

You’d be surprised at how fast something like this can be cleaned up when you throw enough money at it. If the leak itself is fixed, I’d be flabbergasted if the store isn’t open for this weekend’s festivities.

Soaked Macs and iPhones and iPods (and iPads?)!!! Oh the humanity!

Don’t forget the peripherals, ipod and iPhone accessories, and boxes of software that was damaged.
