The New iPad goes on sale this Friday, March 16th starting at 8 AM. Many retail stores such as Best Buy,Walmart,Target,Sams club, and Radio Shack have verified that they will also be selling the iPad on Friday. If you haven’t pre-ordered your device yet than you should make plans to stand in line.
If you don’t leave near an Apple Store this will be great. Many of the stores listed are found within miles of anyone’s house. In addition, not everyone is fully aware that these five retail stores will be selling the iPad. You should still plan to get there at least 3 hours before the store opens because the stock availability will likely be on the low side.
What time you decide to arrive at the store is your call, but plan to arrive atleast 2-3 hours early. I pre-ordered mine the night of the release, so thankfully I will not have to wait. But the flip-side to pre-ordering is you take a chance of late arrival. People who actually wait in line will have the device at 8 AM, while pre-orders are expected by 3 PM on March 16th.
In addition to those 5 retail stores, the Apple Store and Verizon store will have the New iPad in stock March 16th.
What store will you be waiting at?
