    Default No Confirmation of Early Apple Store Hours Tuesday


    Reports surfaced Monday that Apple stores may open as much as one hour earlier than usual on Tuesday to accommodate shoppers who haven't yet been able to purchase the presently sold-out iPad 2. Despite no confirmation from Apple, it has been widely reported that Apple stores are receiving major shipments of the iPad 2 this evening and, as a result, will have their employees report to work extra early Tuesday morning.

    Calls to more than a dozen Apple stores around the US failed to confirm this report, although some of the Apple store employees I spoke with - like one sales representative from the Knox Street Apple Store in Dallas, Texas - reiterated that their store opens at 8:00 am, much earlier than the 10:00 am opening hours of most Apple stores. It is possible that stores with later opening hours may unlock the doors at 9:00 am instead. However, the Lincoln Park Apple Store (one I visit regularly) located at 801 W North Ave, Chicago, Illinois opens at 9:00 am weekdays but similarly denies that early hours are planned for Tuesday.

    While it does appear that huge iPad 2 shipments are definitely inbound tonight, there's no telling where the goods will end up. So if, in fact, any Apple Stores will open early tomorrow, we likely won't know which ones until later tonight - if at all. I will update this report with any additional information I discover as the day passes.

    I hope this is true. I found a 16gb 3G at a local verizon store, and when I went to get it, the district manager had sent them to another store 50 miles away

    Apple store in San Francisco says they will open at 9 tomorrow morning.

    Went there to buy an iPad today because a representative told me they'd be sold this afternoon, but he gave me bad information. I want to punch him.

    Hmmm I have a dilemma. I wonder if this also means other retail stores will be getting shipments. I recently reserved an iPad at best buy for $100. I don't know much about the reliability of this route. I wonder if it would be wise to cancel my reservation, get my $100 back and head on over to the apple store tomorrow morning. Suggestions?? And I don't have the money to just buy one at apple and cancel my pre order afterward, I'm fresh out of money. I would need the $100 from the reservation.

    You are wrong. I just left Best Buy. I made a reservation. They said you can cancel it at anytime and get your money back. The $100 reservation thing you do, just puts $100 on a gift card. It's just a way for them to know you are serious I guess. They said, I can come in and cancel anytime and they'll credit my card back.

    Yes, there is confirmation. Apple Store next to me (Roseville,CA) will open at 9:00 am for sure tomorrow. I'm not really in a rush to get one though. I think the only reason im getting one is im tired of playing games like angry birds on my iphone screen. The overall features of an ipad still dont quite do it for me, but I somehow still want one.

    Getting money credited back on a credit/debit card takes time. It's not instant, and in some cases takes 7 business days. Usually it takes 2-3.

    Anyone who put the $100 down, via credit card, should just wait until Best Buy gets more.
