So Radio Shack may have a midnight opening on 06/04???
Just called my local Radio Shack to see if they were going to open early that day and they informed me that they 'may' have a midnight opening but were not sure yet After confirmation they did say they were going to call me by the 3rd and LMK so I will update this thread as more info comes in.

- Stock for now.
We are doing 8am... and that is pushing it.
Remember people will still come if you open at 6am, 8am or 9am.
Sure you make a few crazy people happy (self included) but you also have increased overhead costs, payroll, and then a lot of down time since regular customers have no idea about it.

Not that it will make any difference but to your Radio Shack employees/managers, I pre-ordered through my local R.S. but fully plan to go to the Sprint store to get my phone because they are opening earlier (and I can walk to them from my condo/office). If that R.S. I pre-ordered at opened at 12-6am...I'd probably go buy it through them.
Again, not that you are making decisions based on moving a couple extra phones but that's what I'm doing.

Well the RS I ordered mine through is in a bad neighborhood, right next to a Subway where you order your sandwich through a bullet proof window, so I don't think they'll be opening early. I'm not even sure how many people would have gone there to order the Evo.

And I would love it if we did a midnight opening to sell the phone, but we dont have those kind of hours. RS barely gives us enough payroll hours to run the store now, we dont have near enough to pull off a midnight event.

Now if the RS I pre-ordered at says they will open at midnight or 6am, I'd be able to get there prior to work via car...again, I know my situation isn't typical...I totally understand not having a midnight opening for a phone.

Wow 10am must be nice lol. Even normal hours I am open at 9. I guess some shacks have all the luck =)
I just want this day to go as smoothly as possible for everyone, because I have a huge demand for this phone in my area. If opening up that early will make the process at least some what painless than so be it.

ya and to the dude who preordered at shack but changed his mind to buy from sprint, you shouldve had to get our 50 dollar gift card so your gonna waste that as well??? i just see that as stupid imho... as for all the rest of the shack employees you guys are lucky =/ my store is in a dead part of town and the only person excited for the evo there is me im the only order at my store! but that means i get it a day or two early too!!! but WOW i wish i had all the interest you guys are getting. my store gets all the grandmas and tweakers who need batteries or change for their next fix... cant stand it... speaking of such you guys get your POP and tags up tonight??? sheesh my store is getting raped by lance!

Just curious, on rt 70? LOL, I hate that dunkin donuts.... I bought a laptop from you guys on black friday and while I was waiting outside the store, the woman who works at DD called the cops on me and swore up and down that I was trying to break in while sitting in my lawn chair.
