As Canadians waited patiently in-front of Apple Retail stores this weekend, many were turned away once the device was sold out. For those still looking for the iPad 2, get ready to head early to the US on Tuesday.
Apple Bitch reports that some Apple retail stores around the United States will be opening an hour early tomorrow in anticipation of receiving more iPad 2 inventory.
While no official announcement has been forthcoming from Apple, anecdotal reports from shoppers across the country trying get an iPad 2 this morning, say they were told by retail staff that even if the Apple Stores were re-stocked today, the iPad 2 would not be sold until tomorrow and for this reason, the Stores would open early for dedicated iPad 2 sales. We have confirmed this with three retail stores.
Most Apple Retail stores open at 10:00 AM, so this early opening means that stores will be opening at 9:00 AM tomorrow. However, you should still check your closest US Apple Retail Store website for exact hours.
For folks living in BC, and specifically the Vancouver area, iPadinCanada has confirmed that each Apple Store in Washington will be opening one hour early. The Lynnwood Apple Store, located in Alderwood Mall, is the closest for most folks in BC, and this location will be opening at 9:00 AM, so get there early because there will be lines!
