Yesterday, I drove up to Edmonton for the grand opening of the apple Store in West Edmonton Mall. I left at around six in the morning, and by the time I arrived at the store at 9am, there were already about 100 people in line.

From the Edmonton Journal ():
More than 600 people packed the 6,000-square-foot West Edmonton Mall location within the first hour, cheering along with Apple Store staff, while still more waited in line.
The store has projected annual sales of over $30 million, mall president Don Ghermezian said in January.
Here are some photos and a YouTube video of the event:
