We are most likely meeting up at the Queen St. entrance. I wonder if anyone's gonna provide ehMac shirts... I didn't get one at Yorkdale

We started a little email loop to keep everyone up to date... if you're interested... email me at azilnik AT gmail DOT com.

Ohenri - I can say for sure I won't be able to (being a couple thousand kilometres away), and in the poll ehMax said he wasn't going to be able to make it, while Heart said probably not.

Looks like I will be able to make it. I think my sister will be with me she has alwasy wanted to go to a store opening since i went to Yorkdale(#37). What time are people going tp start arriving at the store. Is the mall open at all times? Will we be able to line up inside earlier. We are staying at the Eaton Centre Marriott so it is just a short walk from there.

Yorkdale: #37
Woodland Mall Grand Rapids, Mi: #6
Eaton Centre: Top 50?

By the way i will have my Yorkdale shirt on. I wonder how many people went to the Yorkdale opening and are attending Eaton Centre.

I've contacted Eaton Centre and they will be letting me know what the crowd control/security policies will be for the Apple Store queue.



There's a 75% chance I'll be in line too...

Great stuff isergio !
I was around #65 in line at Yorkdale, coming right from Montreal (arrived at the door at 6:15am).
I'll wear my beloved Yorkdale T-shirt too. Hope to be in the first 50 or so.

OFFICIAL QUEUE INFORMATION FOR
APPLE STORE TORONTO EATON CENTRE GRAND OPENING


This is the official information as communicated to me by Mr. Andy Norbert, Security Manager for the Toronto Eaton Centre. Please do not call the Eaton Centre for any other queries as any updates will be posted here.

The Mall is open from 6am to 2am daily, however no loitering is permitted after 9pm when the stores officially close. This being said, TEC is accomodating an overnight queue for the Apple Store grand opening by allowing customers (fanatics) to line-up indoors outside of the Apple Store on Friday night into Saturday morning. After 9pm Friday, you must enter the 24hr entrance via Albert Street on the West side of the Eaton Centre (refer to maps below). There is a security desk there and you will have to identify yourselves as persons wishing to queue for the Apple Store. You will then be directed to the line, immediately to the right when you enter Level 3.

At 6am on Saturday, the mall doors open to the public due to subway and office access. It is expected that persons will respect the queue already indoors and not barge in line. Mr. Norbert indicated that there will be additional security posted that evening/morning and that they've accomodated crowds much greater than ours for basketball, pop idol and other celebrities (Rudy Giuliani) so they can handle the people waiting for the Apple Store opening.

So that's it. Looks like I'll be there, wearing my Yorkdale shirt.
