Retailer allegedly planning more than just accessory sales

The US branch of Staples is planning to sell more than just Apple accessories at its retail stores, sources tell MacRumors. Currently the retailer has only announced sales of accessories and peripherals, which are already available online, and coming soon to physical outlets. The sources suggest, though, that at least some shops will be carrying Macs, iPads, and iPhones.

One person has provided screenshots of training materials, which include modules for MacBooks, iPads, and iPhones. "At the end of this curriculum, associates will be able to describe key features of the Apple iPhone 5, and suggest attachments that compliment the iPhone 5," one module's description reads. All of the modules have completion dates set for March 26th or the 27th, suggesting that sales could start on or around that time.
