    Hey guys since no one has said where to start the lines outside the mall and since it has multiple entrances, I am going to say that the line starts in the Nordstrom Parking garage (Lower floor parking garage, first floor of mall). It is on Boedeker between Park Lane & Northwest Hwy. That is the closest entrance to the Apple Store. The mall opens at 5AM.


    Both LINES (Reservations & Non-reservations) WILL start here. I have attached a map of northpark.

    Map attached.

    Yeah I will, I'm just trying to avoid having two lines and then not knowing who got here when, so I've been checking the entrance every so often making sure no one is there, and I will keep everyone posted on the status of the line, etc

    Lancao, any update on whether or not NorthPark security will let us stay overnight inside the mall? How is the line looking?

    **Location Update**

    Hey guys, I just called the Apple Store at NorthPark, and the lady that answered gave me some key information.

    1. Mall Security will NOT let anyone camp inside the mall overnight. They WILL kick you out.

    2. There is only 1 entrance that opens at 5AM, and it is not the one on the map at the beginning of this post. I have attached an updated map.

    3. They will open the doors next to Maggiano's Little Italy, and keep order to the Apple store, so the order you get in outside the mall is the order you will get your iPhone 4.

    4. The lady I spoke with said she did tell some people to go to the nearest entrance at the Apple store, but that entrance WILL NOT be unlocked until normal business hours.

    ***IMPORTANT INFO***

    I called NorthPark Security to confirm about what doors will be unlocked/locked, and they did confirm that the doors on the NWY sid next to Maggiano's will be the ONLY doors unlocked at 5AM. Furthermore, I asked about their camping rules, and she said that there will be ABSOLUTELY no camping anywhere on NorthPark property including sitting in your car in the parking lot. They have told their security officers to tell people to leave the property if they see anyone loitering in their cars near any entrances not just the Maggiano one.

    Maybe sit in the Lincoln One parking lot????


    It seems like it will be a mad dash to the Apple Store to create the line up. Thankfully I have a reservation...

    Check attached map for updated location.

    Thanks.

    I as well just spoke with mall security and was told that the doors beside Maggiano's and Chico's would be opening at 5:00 a.m. This is my first wait in line launch day, does anyone have any suggestions or pointers for me? I have reserved my phone and called yesterday to make sure I was on the list and I am. Maybe I should bring some Starbucks for the people waiting in line with me!!

    I also have a reservation, so what does that mean? Will I be in a shorter line? This will be my first time picking up an iPhone on launch date, normally I wait till the excitement dies down to purchase one.

    I'm at northpark just spoke with security and they said doers by both entrances open at 5 am. Wouldn't it be closer to wait by the chicos entrance? Also I have not seen anyone waiting in line, maybe because they are not allowed too?

    Yea I was at the mall, but they said no one can stay on mall property, so now I'm kinda curious as what everyone is going to do. I have a phone reserved but i live an hour and a half away so i would rather wait it out! Anywhere we can camp???

    Take this for what it is a "rumor" but people at knox were saying the Northpark store is supposed to have the most "extra"

    If you have a reservation you really have no need to camp. The stores are allocated inventory based on reservations and pre-orders. Those orders will be filled first before walk-ins are released and most likely that will be the 25th for walk-ins assuming they still have inventory. Only reason you would need to be there early is if have someone to be like work. Otherwise you can go whenever if you don't mind standing in line and have a day to kill.
