Unless I am much mistaken the Trafford Centre (this thread) and the Arndale (the other) are not the same stores...

Anyone know the time that it will be open, on the front page it says 8:00am -on macrumors- but the Trafford Centre store opens at 10:00am plus the way apple is they don't like releasing things that other time zones are ahead do they? If you get what I mean. Anyone called up yet, love to see there response.

I called them at 17:30 today and they gave the standard answer that they don't know what time they're opening yet

That sounds like a semi-reasonable time! I was thinking 6.30 or thereabouts.

Early Start

I'm planning to be there about 6am too. Hoping the line isn't to long by then. Has anyone got any good recommendations for screen protectors and/or cases?

Does anybody know if Apple would let me que up? I'm 14 and I wanted to know if they would let me. I was going to get up, take the bus to the Trafford Centre, hopefully be in line with one of you guy's I could trust to hold my place if I went to get food or what-not and then call my dad to meet me when I am like 30mins away from purchasing.

Don't worry I am not one of them spoilt children that get anything they truly want, I know it sounds like that but I have saved my money fairly, I am giving my dad the cash for it.

Hope I could meet one of you guy's because your all nice fellows, can't wait for tommorow! Woo!

Sure, they'll let you queue - start chatting t the people around you, they'll hold your place or let an Apple staff member know.

----------

I'll be getting there for 5am, anyone who gets there first can they update this thread to let us know what the queue is like please

Thanks!!

Having gone to Tesco only to find a bunch of 32 and 16GB it's off to TC I go in a few hours.

Hoping the queue isn't too bad. Even tempted to order from John Lewis and collect on Saturday.
