    I don’t believe I saw a thread for Columbus. Anyone going to Polaris or Easton?


    I plan on going to Polaris after work. What part of the mall does everyone general wait outside of?

    What time are you going? I heard they are opening the doors by Von Maur at midnight so people can line up inside by the Apple Store. I plan on lining up in front of there.

    I called he Polaris store and they said lineup starts at the entrance by Buckeye corner. I’ll be there around 9pm!

    Where’s Buckeye corner? I’m going over around 9:00 or a little before. Did he give you any indication of what supply is like?

    It’s at the east end of the building in the center courtyard near Dave and Busters/Barnes and Noble. No indication about stock.

    I'm leaving from Hilliard in 15-20 minutes. Probably there by 8:30 or so.

    Here now. It appears the location changed. The line is out by the entrance between Von Maur and the maternity store. About 10 people ahead of me.

    May the force be with you all. I used to line up every year because there was no online option to pay in full. Polaris is usually a little more lenient with launch events; Easton security used to shoo us away until after 3 AM.

    FYI the Polaris Target didn't get any stock. I had to run in for a wedding gift this evening and asked the phone guy what kind of stock they were getting, and he said no stock on launch day.

    I stopped by about 4pm and the big dude in the pic was 3rd in line. Not too shabby at this point. I’m gonna try and swing over later tonight. Keep me posted on the size of the line!

    Supposed to rain so I’d say it stays the same or shrinks even.

    I don't know if they still run people off until 3 AM. Don't wait based on my account.

    We’ve got some people here at Polaris that came from Easton. Cops ran everyone off.

    How many people in line at this point? Have they moved you guys inside, or is that at midnight?

    I’ve heard it isn’t until 6 this year. Not for sure though. About 15 people. Maybe 20 at most.

    I think the rain is scaring people off. Barely any sprinkles so far though. By the way.. after midnight. Still outside.

    Last year for the 7 Plus launch I pre-ordered, but bought 4 dozen donuts at Krispy Kreme and brought them over and 3 people were in line. Tried to unload some at Best Buy, Verizon, AT&T on Polaris...no one there. Ended up taking them to work the next day.

    I was at the Verizon store last year. Definitely remember donuts being dropped off. :)
