AT&T stores to close at 4:30 ahead of iPhone launch

Updated

All company-owned AT&T stores will be closing at 4:30 p.m. June 29, to prepare for the iPhone launch. The stores will then re-open at 6:00 p.m. to begin selling the device, according to a Boy Genius Report article. The report claims that iPhone shipments are expected to arrive within the 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. timeframe that day, keeping unscrupulous employees from selling the device early. The store’s iPhone display is also expected to be setup during the hour and a half break. Finally, the report claims that most AT&T stores will then stay open late, possibly until 12:00 Midnight.
