Apple Stores Opening Early for Snow Leopard Launch

| Snow Leopard

Apple Stores around the U.S. are opening early of Friday, August 28, so Mac owners can buy their copy of Snow Leopard first thing in the morning. Many locations around the country will be open as early as 8AM which means shoppers should be able to get their hands on Mac OS X 10.6 in stores ahead of pre-order deliveries.

The Apple retail locations The Mac Observer checked with all confirmed they would be opening early for the Snow Leopard launch, but none confirmed whether or not they will be offer free t-shirts to early buyers. T-shirts have often been offered at Mac OS X launches as a perk for the first shoppers in the store.

Since some Apple retail locations may not be able to open early because of mall restrictions, be sure to check with your local store to verify their Friday hours. Apple's retail store Web site is also a good resource for checking store hours.

Be sure to check out TMO's Snow Leopard Special Report for tips on preparing for the OS upgrade along with information on application compatibility.

I checked with my local San Diego Apple Stores

Fashion Valley
North County Fair
University Town Center

All will open at 10:00 AM. The person in the phone doesn’t think that they will be handing out T-shirts, and I would think that they would have seen the boxes.

Considering the heat wave we are experiencing, even the visiting “Zonies” are complaining, I will make my purchase at the North County Fair store which is in an indoor mall.

No t shirts being handed out this go round at the Friendly Shopping Center Apple Store in Greensboro, NC when I picked up my copy of Snow Leopard.
