Apple is set to open new ‘store-within-a-store’ outlets in select Target locations later this year, technology blog AppleInsider reported Friday.
The Silicon Valley giant plans to begin operating Apple-branded mini stores at 25 larger Target stores in parts of the US which are not able to support a standalone Apple Store, according to a source familiar with the situation.
Apple currently operates a “store within a store” at over 600 Best Buy locations with “Apple Shops,” some of which feature staffing by Apple Solution Consultants, according to the website.
The Apple brand first appeared in Target in 2002, when the company began selling its popular iPod in all Target stores. Target also became the first retailer outside of Apple and Best Buy to begin selling the iPad in October of 2010. read the rest (Source: myfox9.com)
