    Trying to figure out a good time to lineup for the release at either the Crabtree or Southpoint location. The Crabtree location is inside the mall, not exactly sure how that one is going to work. Anyone with previous experience at either of these two stores?

    I called Crabtree and they aren't opening the mall doors until 6am. I am afraid of that and feel like that is gonna create chaos once the doors open. I plan on lining up at Southpoint as they are letting people line up overnight.

    Good to know, I don’t feel like dealing with a race to the Apple Store.

    Why? I am from Charlotte but need to be in RTP for work. Will Southpoint get crazy with folks camping out?

    Well guys I called Southpoint and the security has no idea what’s going on. One person told me we can line up overnight and another said that we cannot line up until starting at 8am. Who knows anymore lol

    I picked up a series 3 from southpoint on launch day. Got to the store around 6am since they opened at 8. The police were their instead of security and no one had a problem with us lining up. ill be there at 8 as thats when my in store pick time is.

    Yeah I know of people who have stayed overnight for launches at Southpoint without a problem. I’m just gonna assume security doesn’t know what they’re talking about and go anyway.

    I've never stood in line for any release. When do people usually arrive? Would 6am be too late? Is 8pm Thursday night too early?

    When I went in there yesterday, I spoke with two employees. Both told me they don't allow overnight camping anymore. The first said some people come as early as 3 am, and the second said I could show up by 6 am. I'm not sure what to think.

    Geez. I called Apple earlier and they said there’s always overnight camping allowed. Then the security gave me totally different answers on two different occasions. It’s annoying that there’s no solid answer. I’d be more frustrated if I waited and realized that people had in fact camped out.

    I stood in line for iPhone6 at crabtree. I reached the mall around 4am. People were standing in line by then outside the mall. Once the mall security opened the doors at 6am, everyone slowly walked into the mall and started to form line outside the Apple Store. The lines were long but nothing crazy. Hope this helps
