Apple earlier today confirmed their 8AM retail opening on Friday to start new iPad sales. Now, confirmation has come that Future Shop will do the same (and probably Best Buy too). The Future Shop community forums noted the time by an associate from their Burnaby Head Office (thx @paulmontag):
We just got word that all stores will open at 8am this Friday Mar 16 for the latest tablet release.
I’ll be waiting in line for sure – will you?Julia

Also, yesterday an early snapshot of a Future Shop poster noted by MobileSyrup showed the same 8AM opening time. Check out the poster below:
We’ve confirmed via our tipsters that the 8AM is spot on, so if you’ve been waiting to hear from Future Shop, start planning your route of attack for Friday. Anyone getting their iPad from Future Shop/Best Buy?
