I'd love to hear from anyone who queued for the 5 last year at this location
Im tempted to go down.
EDIT - Re-reading your post - I take it you wernt there last year?
I wasn't no
I figured it may be less busy than West Quay and it's a much bigger store. Festival place twitter are yet to confirm but they mentioned a 5am opening time for queuers
Yes, Id imagine it will be a lot less busy than West Quay.
Interesting - guess we'll keep an eye on their twitter then. What time were you thinking of heading there?
was there for the 5, at least stopped by to have a look.
there was a very large queue, from the store, to the other side, back past starbucks, then looped past the underwear shop.
Cheers Dave - I did manage to find a YouTube video and the queue looked fairly large there too.
I arrived about 0530-0600 for the 5 launch.droppd past on way home from a night shift
So Festival Place have confirmed they'll open centre doors @ 5AM.
What do you intend to do jackpea?
What are your plans?
Alledgedly Apple arent expecting huge numbers and havent requested any additional staff/security etc to help out, dont know if this is an oversight but interesting.
5AM start and youre not even sure if youre going to buy - thats dedication to the brand haha. Im sure you'll get caught up in it all and buy one.
Still undecided myself - which way will you go in if you get there for 5AM?
Am going to see what the wait is online, if its long am thinking of heading over this way for around 4:30ish. Anyone whos been there before for a launch, any idea how long the wait usually is around that time... although i guess maybe totally different this time!
With my contract i have to upgrade with o2 so ill be on the phone to them at 0800
ill stop by about 0830 if anyone is in the queue then drop me a PM and we can have a mini MR meet lol
I'm working in Basingstoke at the moment... heading back to Blackpool friday afternoon / evening... I'm REALLY tempted to go to Festival Place... but Not sure what time to arrive... Supposed to start work at 9am... so does anyone know if they're starting selling at 8am?
What a shambles...
Haha, glad I'm not the only one who thought that.
It was a mess from the start really. When they for the 3rd time asked people in the middle of the queue to start moving back, I left.
Anyone thinking of going this year?
Pre-orders still have stock for reserve and pickup
Does any one know what time Festival place is opening on Friday?
I'm debating going down, what do people think the walk in stock will be like?
Reach Apple Store @ Festival Place at 4:30 am. Guaranteed to get the phone you want.
Done that for last 3 times; got it each time.
The early bird gets the wo..
If the doors say open at 5am, is there a specific door that'd have a queue behind it that'd transfer to outside the shop?
Ok, I'll go down for then then.
Like above, is there a 'special' door to queue at?
What is the turnaround time? Guess it depends on the number of staff?
