Australian Apple Boutiques

Apple plans to at Australian retail chains in time for Christmas. According to Australian IT, "the new stores within David Jones will be structured differently to Apple's previous, less than successful attempts at selling computers in the department store chain, as well as Harvey Norman." The five locations in Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, the Gold Coast and Sydney are scheduled to open December 1, 2003 and will be staffed by trained Apple employees.

    Good

    Good to see Apple being more proactive down here in the South Pacific. However, if only Apple could start taking more of an interest in New Zealand. Apple doesn't offically even have a prescence here, merely a distributor called Renaissance see www.apple.co.nz. A company which is also a Microsoft distributor, so they don't care if a sale is a Mac or a PC, they win either way. Hardly leads to a growth in marketshare, added to the fact that the last time I saw an add on TV was like 100 years ago, the state of Apple in NZ sucks.
    Anyways at least the aussies have a good Apple setup :/

    re: Good

    New Zealand is being worked on. Apple had to pull back and figure out what they want to do with New Zealand like they did in Australia a few years ago. It is going to get a whole lot better

    Australia is not getting an Apple Store like the States - it is getting a Store within a Store like CompUSA - it will be staffed by Apple Employees (again like CompUSA). The one already running in Sydney is very successful - over half the machines sold in there are Macs - the staff love them because they pretty much sell themselves. The Apple guy helping them out is apparently very passionate and helpful...

    you know

    that apple treats everyone not living in the US as red headed stepchildren. You should be used to being treated as a second class citizen from apple by now.
