As first reported on, Apple will open its new Hornsby store this Saturday (24 September 2011) at 10am. To encourage consumers to stop by, the American supplier of Macs, iPhones and iPads is giving away commemorative t-shirts.

“The Apple Store, Hornsby, will be open soon so you can shop, test-drive our products, ask questions and much more,” reads the official propaganda. “Come in and check out the Mac, iPhone, iPad and iPod. Get the most out of your new Mac with One to One. Or meet our business team. And if you’re one of our first 1,000 customers, you’ll take home a free commemorative t-shirt.”

The small print says that One to One costs RRP $129 per year, while ‘customers’ has a flexible meaning: you don’t actually have to purchase anything to get a free t-shirt.

The new store is located at Shop 2090-2093 Westfield Hornsby, 236 Pacific Highway, Hornsby, New South Wales.
