A new Apple Premium Reseller store opened in Manchester on November 12.

The store opening featured a Digital Lifestyle commpetition, with a 20-inch iMac, iPod nano, iPod HiFi, Canon printer and Canon Ixus i7 up for grabs.

The grand opening also featured The Bodyrockers, who showed attendees how they used Logic Pro 7 and Garageband to secure their chart hits this year. It also featured DJ/producer Jason Herd, who showed how he uses those Apple music-making applications when he plays out.

In the run-up to Christmas, the store has plenty of demonstration days scheduled, as well as "loads of free giveaways". The solution bar hosts three Apple Certified Engineers, there to help solve problems.

The new Digital Store Manchester is situated at 1, Piccadilly Gardens, Manchester, M1 1RG.
