Hi Guys. Taxi Booked for 3:30 from Nottingham, Planning to get there at about 4:30. Do you think that is a reasonable time? Also what time do Apple open tomorrow. I just called the Highcross control centre and apparently they opening at 8:00 tomorrow and the centre is opening at 7:30? Is this information correct? Thanks guys.

I just arrived. I'm the 8th in queue.

The shopping center opens at 7am eceptionally tomorrow.

Apple staff will arrive at 7am to open the shopping center so the queues moves inside the upper floor where apple store is located.
