Just a heads up that not all stores may have gotten the memo yet.
I just tried to pre-order in-store at the FS near Thickson and the 401 in Whitby, Ontario and was told that they were not accepting in-store pre-orders and that I had to order online. I showed the sales rep the conversation in this thread and he said that not all stores were doing this (that it should have said "selected stores" rather than "all stores").
Also should add that when I try to order online, In-Store Pickup (what the sales rep said to use) is not selectable.

Now I'm confused. What is the point of pre-ordering the CE in-store? I didn't pay the full price ... does this mean I may be confronted with a "Sorry, we're sold out" when I go to the midnight release (if there will be one).

Charquoise, Juice's post is only referring to online orders, ie. you can't pre-order online and have the option to pick-up in-store. Since you pre-ordered in-store, you should have no problem picking up in-store at release.
Going by Godwin's posts, stores have been allotted a limited guaranteed number of CE's, regardless of online pre-orders, which is what you reserved. So you should be good to go!

Note though, that when you pre-order in-store, you can only pick up your item from the store you preordered at.

We have 1000 units allocated for pre-orders right now for stores to pre-order. Once stores have hit this number, we will stop in-store pre-orders. These 1000 customers will be guaranteed a unit as each store will be shipped the exact amount of pre-orders that were taken.
We are moving thru a ton of CE versions right now so this is the best way to "guarantee" your copy of Diablo 3CE.
Hope that helps.
