Anyone know if Best Buy is opening earlier to coincide with the AT&T & Apple stores?

So my store is only getting a QTY:2 of the 16GB White

And one of those is mine via Pre-oreder!

Wow only one other one for this store, that is crazy!!

Okay so what if I get there and they sold my pre-order phone?

I just recently went to my local bestbuy and asked to pre-order. According to them I am guaranteed one no matter what time I go tomorrow. Maybe I was just lucky and no one else went there. Seems better to go there than at&t or apple stores.

Anchorage gets 62 (3rd highest total) and Aeia, Hawaii gets 65 (2nd Highest total) behind Riverhead, NY (69)?? Now there's logic. More than most NY stores, all LA and Chicago, etc. Go figure that one out.

The Alaska BB is one of the biggest that we have, its one of the busiest for sure. Plus they get a lot less trucks than we do, instead of get 4 a week, I once heard they get one or two a month. Rich fisherman maybe, but when you are the only BB in how many miles that probably will be the case. Think of BB in CO, 5 million people, around 20 stores, avg of 250k per store, in Alaska 656,000 per 1 store plus workers who don't live there and less likely chance of replenishment.

According to that list my store (458) is only getting 2 White 32GB. And I have my name on one of those. And I was the only one to pre order that flavor and first on their Appointment book. :) And I already picked up a new case to put the phone in once I get it in my hands. (Incase Frame Case - Vivid Green)

Just not sure why they are getting so few, I am thinking because there are 2 At&t stores and an Apple store less then 2 minutes away.

I think this is the same person that I doubted last night, sorry for doubting you.

Those are the exact numbers an employee told me for my store.

I had reserved a 32gb
