Customers line up at 3:30am for new Apple Retail Store in Calgary

Apple Online Store“Wednesday morning, that excitement was evident as about 200 people lined up to be the first ones in the store at the grand opening of the new expansion at Chinook Centre,” Mario Toneguzzi reports for The Calgary Herald.

“Some even came as early as 3:30am,” Toneguzzi reports. “The doors to the mall opened at 5am and the stores opened at 8am.”

Toneguzzi reports, “Dylan Ostafie, 22, was also at the mall since 3:30 a.m. and first in line at the Apple store. ‘We randomly decided we wanted an iPhone. They’re sold out everywhere,’ he said. ‘We figured we’d just beat everyone else.’ Asked about what he thought of the new expansion, Ostafie quipped: ‘We haven’t really checked it out. We just came for the Apple store.'”

  1. I worked in Canada on some television shows and mini-series and in Calgary and went to the Chinook Centre many times, even while it was being revamped. Calgary is a flat prairie town, gateway to the gorgeous Canadian Rockies and Banff, Lake Louise, Emerald Lake, etc.. Alberta is so beautiful and why so many “American westerns” are shot there. I did business with some Apple dealers downtown and they were very good. Now they finally get their own Apple Store. I know some of my fellow Mac friends up there will be very happy about that! I miss Calgary.
