With so much buzz about the Brooklyn Apple Store lately, we nearly forgot about the almost-opened shop in the Meatpacking District. Still coyly covered up, the final reveal is just around the corner, as signs promise a December 7th opening -- just in time to spend your Christmas bonus on shiny new iThings. This location has two stories with a glass staircase connecting them, and it will be a circular staircase similar to the one in Japan (Racked got a sneak peak at it through a window last night). One of those floors will be dedicated to service, and will be staffed by professional filmmakers and musicians!

Located on 14th Street and Ninth Avenue, the store has even started receiving packages (pictured)! What's inside? Most likely something totally awesome that everyone will wait hours in line for. Expect more details next week, and for those who want to be the first to get in there -- doors unlock at 6pm on opening day.
