The Los Angeles Times recently contained an Apple ad thanking the 139,000 visitors it received to its Los Angeles Apple store at The Grove in its first month. The ad states, “Whether you came because of the shopping, the free classes or the misconception that our Genius Bar serves something besides free advice, you’ve given us the warmest welcome we could ask for. Thank you.” Last month, Apple ran a similar ad in The New York Times, in which the company thanked the 100,000 New Yorkers that visited its SoHo location.
