On May 19, 2001, Apple launched its first retail store(s): one in Tysons Corner, Virginia and the other in Glendale, California. Now, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the launch Apple is preparing some special stuff for the event.

According to BGR:

Apple stores have received some kind of hardware with more coming on Friday and Saturday. Furthermore some Apple store employees will be working late Saturday night through mid-Sunday and that during that time black curtains will be put in place over all of the stores' windows so that folks who happen to be walking past won't be able to see what's going on inside.

Apple Store employees will have special meetings planned for Sunday morning, according to the report's sources.

Finally the story claims, "Employees have had to download gigabytes of data from Apple corporate labeled, "training" in a password-protected zipped folder that won't accessible to managers or anyone else until Saturday afternoon.

Lastly, all Apple retail stores have mandatory meetings on Sunday, May 22nd. Most meeting are scheduled for the morning, but there are evening meetings as well.
