Optus has just announced that “all” of its “Yes” branded Optus stores “around the country” will be getting supplies and stocks of the iPhone 5, ready for the 8am sales launch this Friday the 21st of September.
Existing Optus customers who were smart enough to “pre-order” will get the pleasure of skipping past the lines and being able to take advantage of “priority pick up” from ‘Yes’-branded Optus stores “at a time convenient to them”.
Those who pre-order get additional benefits beyond avoiding the hassle of queues, with Optus stating that four key, flagship Optus “Yes” stores around Australia will be offering extra-special pre-ordering benefits.
These include “staff on hand to manage the rush with a queue management app”, “access to tech experts to help them settle into their new handset”, and “as a thank you, customers will also receive a special giveaway item and get refreshed with a take away drink and food bag.”
The four key locations for those pre-ordering that want the special Optus treatment are:
- 280 George St, Sydney
- Shop 9, Tattersalls Arcade, 211 -225 Queen St, Brisbane
- 253 Bourke St, Melbourne
- 659 Hay St, Perth
