So we have confirmed that Troy, Michigan has the iPod touch in stock. I just purchased my 16GB iPod touch from the Victoria Gardens store in Rancho Cucamonga.

As you find an Apple Store with them in stock, post here.

As of Thursday evening, the Apple store at Sherway Gardens, Toronto does not have them in.

The chick who answered the phone sounded highly annoyed and told me to "go to Apple.ca" then she added "it says September 28th".

I didn't bother to tell her it's popping up all over the place today. I'll call & stop by tomorrow when I'm in town.

Awesome. Those are the only two I can really take the time to go to at the moment, unfortunately. I'd love to make a trip to Pentagon City, but it's the opposite direction from work and I'd be risking GF aggro.

FWIW, by the time I called Montgomery Mall last night around 9:15 they said they'd sold out, but were very helpful and said they might be getting another shipment today. They also said that their shipment yesterday was all 16GBs, but they weren't sure if that meant a shipment today would be all 8s or not.

I also just talked to the Columbia Mall store and they said they would not be getting their first shipment until next week.

Any updates from Towson?

Last night the new Apple Store in Ann Arbor, Michigan got their shipment in.

Actually it was quite exciting for me, my girlfriend and I were just in the store messing around with iPhones since she's looking to buy one (And I wanted to test drive the interface/Safari) and I then left to go to the bathroom down the hall, which is also where the shipments for the stores come in. Walking down the hall a UPS (Or fedex, whatever) guy carrying a lot of large brown boxes on a Dolly asked me which way the apple store back was, and I was like "It's down- holy ****, you're shipping in ipod touches, aren't you." Yeah, that's my story. They must have gotten about 25-30 of them, I haven't called yet to see if they're selling or not. But i'll update you all when I find out.

Just picked one up at Tysons, btw. They only have 16gb models and said they got them in around 3:00 this morning. They're not advertised so you have to ask for them specifically.

I was thinking the same thing about the Clarendon store - they seem to have the best stock of the 3 NoVA stores. When I checked around 7pm last night they had already sold out of the 16GB and the clerk told me to check again around noon today. When I called at noon they said none were sent today, but I'm not sure I'm sold on that since the Tysons store told me yesterday that the rumors the Touch was out were false.

It was sort of crudely displayed on the floor, definitely not complete. The Touch was there, but there was no signage or anything up yet. If you weren't looking closely, you'd just have assumed it was another iPhone.

I called ahead and they told me they only had the 16GB version, but the clerk asked me whether I was looking for an 8GB or 16GB version when I asked at the counter. I hypothesize three different scenarios.

Scenario 1 (49% chance of accuracy based on past Apple Store experience)
Me: "I'll take an 8GB."
Clerk: "Sorry, we only have the 16GB."

Scenario 2 (49% chance of accuracy based on past Apple Store experience)
Me: "I'll take an 8GB"
Clerk: "Here you go. Gimme money."

Scenario 3 (2% chance of accuracy based on past Apple Store experience)
Me: "I'll take an 8GB
Clerk: (Says nothing, lunges over the counter with a portable credit card reader in his hand and murder in his eyes)

Nice update, I was wondering what the situation was in IL. Considering, the only post from the chicagoland area was from the Woodfield store.

Well hopefully shipments stay steady for me on the 28th (payday)

Clarendon still says sold out - check back tomorrow (clerk said they only got 10 in yesterday's shipment and they weren't expecting them). Also, Pentagon City still only has the 8GB and Tysons has sold out of their 16's and now only have a few 8GB left.

Awesome, the 8gb's all I need. Do you know if either of the stores have them out on display?

They didn't say - it sounds from the board like most stores do NOT have them out yet, but instead you have to ask for them. The clerk at Clarendon couldn't stop raving about the thing though - I know he's just trying to help move product, but still...

I just called Tysons, Clarendon, and Pentagon City.

Tysons - Some 8gig in stock, no 16gig. I forgot to ask if they had any on display.
Edit: I called again, they do have them on display.

Clarendon - None in stock, some on display.

Pentagon City - Two 8gig left, no 16gig. They do have some on display.

Anyone know about the Apple store in Omaha (updates, I saw the previous post about possible stock this morning) or at St Louis Galleria?

While I was opening it the employees gathered around me to get a look at it. lol It was kind of like a Seinfeld episode.

AWwww.. I didn't know best buy even carried ipods.

I went to three Apple stores today. Left work at 3 to go to Clarendon (closest to my house)...was playing with the touch (my first time with touch or iphone) and fell in love. Then I overheard the sales guy saying they were totally sold out.

So I hopped in the car and drove to Pentagon. That store is terrible. All of 7 people working there, 3 of them behind the genius bar. Finally I get ahold of a girl and she says that they have 8GB but not 16GB. This store doesn't even have a checkout counter!

So I give up and go home...reading through this thread I see that Tysons still has some. So I call the store and ask, and he says they sure do have em. I ask if he thinks they'll still be any left if I get there in an hour and he say can't be sure. So I jump in the car instantly and exactly 22 minutes later walk into the store. The first girl I talk to says they're sold out. I ask another guy and he says they never even got them in!!

So anyway...a day late and a dollar short I guess. If I had just visited the stores in a different order I probably would have gotten one. The biggest irony is my friend was the Tysons store earlier today buying a laptop...but I wasn't sure which ipod to get until I played with all of them at the Clarendon store.

Anyhoo, my goal is to get one before Monday so I can have it at work...so I gots two days left. I'm gonna keep reading the thread and calling Clarendon.

FWIW, by the time I called Montgomery Mall last night around 9:15 they said they'd sold out, but were very helpful and said they might be getting another shipment today. They also said that their shipment yesterday was all 16GBs, but they weren't sure if that meant a shipment today would be all 8s or not.

I also just talked to the Columbia Mall store and they said they would not be getting their first shipment until next week.

Any updates from Towson?

They must have been misinformed. I waltzed in and picked up an 8GB Touch at around 11ish this morning.

At the Tysons store, I asked two people at the checkout counter if they had the touches. Both said no without looking. Later, right before I left, I heard an employee saying that they may have some 8gigs left. They need to keep their employees a bit more up to date (these were two hours apart) :p

So what the heck is going on? Is apple trying out some underground advertising, just flooding the general public with enough of the Touches to garner people's interest so the masses go nuts when it's "officially released"? I'm kinda bugged personally. I literally preorded the thing at 12:32 pm on September 5th, as soon as the apple site had enough open bandwidth to handle my order, hoping that I'd get one before running out. But now I can just waltz into Best Buy and pick one off the shelf? Meanwhile I'm stuck waiting for two weeks? That sucks dude. I hope they bump the ship date up.

MOA-None in stock
Southdale- No 16GB's, had 3 8GB's left about 20 minutes ago, I went and grabbed mine.
Not sure about Rosedale or Minnetonka.

Good luck! Glad I didn't order it online, I have always liked walking in to the store and be able to hold the box, plus it seems to make it easier to return items if need be.

At the time of your post MOA (Mall Of America) had 20 8gb, and about 12 16gb iPod Touches.

I was at Southdale at the time of your post and they had none despite saying they had plenty before I drove from Chanhassen to pick one up. They said that they would Not hold any for anybody (over the phone), but the first thing they asked me was if I had someone holding one for me when I arrived and asked to pick one up.

I did everything I could not to blow up, and simply said, "I was told you couldn't hold them, so why are you holding one or more for someone else"? They had no reasonable reply. :mad:

I called the MOA and they said they would have enough, thankfully they didn't sell out.

As of ~noon Thursday.

Ridgedale (Minnetonka Minnesota) SOLD OUT
Southdale (Edina Minesota) SOLD OUT
MOA (Bloomington Minnesota) ~ 10 of each

I bet they have now been sold out in all stores, however I could be mistaken.

For those buying hordes of these things to sell on Ebay at exotic prices, I sincerely hope that Apple has a huge release to all stores, and you end up taking a loss on your purchase.

Sadly I ran into this with the 1st generation NANO. Thousands of people picked theirs up in stores before Mine shipped. I really question Apple's reason for having a Pre-Order process, yet ship product to stores BEFORE shipping these same products out to people that have already paid for theirs.

I'd call before you go. I drove there from Sioux City, Iowa, about an hour and a half drive. (I did it in about an hour, though.)

PS. They won't hold any for you there. I drove them nuts, and couldn't get them to crack, so I just took a chance that they'd have them when I got there. I was lucky.

As a liberal economist I can't say that I hold it against anybody who resells hot products on ebay. There's a market arbitrage opportunity and they're capitalizing on it.

Anyway, aside from whether its ethical or not, I looked briefly on ebay and it seems not many people are going to make much profit. The supply seems only lightly constrained, and it looks like most stores are getting boxes every few days. I doubt the supply shortage will last very long.

Already this thread seems to be dying, as I guess most people have found theirs already -- I have not -- and this is probably a pretty hardcore buyers group.

I've called everyplace in Sioux Falls, SD and only gotten laughed at or firmly told that they dont come out till the very end of the month.

I suppose I'll start my calling rounds again a little later today to see if I can stick it to anyone thats looked at me like I'm a retard.... Or just keep them thinking I'm retarded and saying that the Touch is out weeks earlier than planned.

Very mixed responses from different people at different stores...Some Best Buy people said they would get them today and when I called today the person said not until the 28th.

I called Clarendon and Tysons this afternoon. Both were sold out of 16G, but Tysons had some 8G.

They said they were getting shipments every day and selling out before noon. Who are all these people shopping the Apple store between 10 am and 11:59 am?? I'm half tempted to call in sick.

If you find a stash anywhere else please share...I'm still really looking forward to one but my schedule isn't convenient enough to canvass all the Apple stores on a daily basis.

one you want to buy. The 8gig or 16gig?

I said I can buy it now before the 28th? He said yes we reserved one for you. I bought it and walked out.
