We’ve been getting word that whatever is going on in the Apple Stores this weekend is hitting all over the world.  A tipster from Australia notes:

This Saturday (21st), all Australian (at least) retail stores will under go visual merchandising from 6pm – 6am (22nd). A sheet will be raised to prevent any one seeing inside, and from 6am – 10am, all apple retail staff will participate in a compulsory meeting.

Something big? VM is rarely so private, and is never followed by an all staff meeting.

Additionally we’re hearing the phrase “Apple Store 2.0” thrown around.
