The Boston area has two very exciting store openings coming up!
First, we have the [Apple Store Burlington Mall](http://www.apple.com/retail/burlington/) opening on Saturday, November 5 at 10 a.m.. Becky and I will be waiting in line early in the morning for the grand opening. The first 1,000 people through the door get free t-shirts! We probably won’t have much reason to visit the Burlington location on a regular basis, since the [Northshore](http://www.apple.com/retail/northshore/) location is just minutes away from our house. But it will be cool to attend the opening day festivities. For an example of what those festivities might entail, check out the photos from the [Chestnut Hill](http://prwdot.org/gallery2/v/geekiness/apple_store_chestnut_hill/) opening day event.
Next, we have the [IKEA Stoughton](http://www.ikea.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/IkeaNearYouView?storeId=12&StoreName=stoughton) opening on Wednesday, November 9 at 10 a.m. This will be the first IKEA in Massachusetts! Up until now, the closest one was in New Haven, CT. Sadly, we both have to work on the day of the grand opening, but we do plan on taking a trip out there sometime soon to check it out!
