    Hey east coasters! What time did your local non 24hr best buys open today? I am waiting in line at a target in California right now and the online inventory on their website makes me think I am leaving empty handed.

    Did they open at 8am? Or 10am?

    Are there long lines? Which store are you at?

    Seems some BB's are waiting until 10AM to open their doors. Others have posted they hand out tickets prior to store opening. I think it depends on management at each location.

    I'm in Chico, Ca ... Target only had two iPads, one 16GB Black WiFi and one 16GB Black Wifi+ATT.

    Best Buy is opening at 10am, there's only two people in line there right now. I have to work so I can't wait with them, but I'll stroll over at 9:45am and see what I can get.

    Yea, I am in the Washington, DC area and I went to the Best Buy near University of Maryland and the store didn't open until 10 but the staff handed out tickets around 8:30. Now I'm at home with my new 32GB 4G iPad.
