“We are going to set the benchmark for the technology buying experience at a whole new level. Apple helped design the store and we were able to incorporate all their latest ideas learned from Apple Premium Reseller stores overseas, as well as build in a few unique ideas of our own” says Wright.
The store features 450sqm of retail space, including a 30‐seat training and presentation theatre and a spectacular glass encased entrance atrium. Within thestore there are dedicated areas for digital video, audio and digital photography, allowing customers to enjoy a full hands‐on experience with a wide range of Apple products and peripherals.
The store’s staff is on hand to share their expertise and offer personalised tuition on everything from getting started with a Mac, to building a web site, to creating a podcast or making a digital movie. Visitors will also be able to sit down and enjoy one of the many free training sessions that will be held in the custom‐built theatre.
“This Apple Premium Retail store experience will give every customer the chance to test‐drive Apple’s entire product line including the all‐new MacBook and MacBook Pro notebook computers, the world’s thinnest notebook — the MacBook Air, plus the entire iPod range, from the widescreen iPod Touch to the smallest, most wearable digital music player, the iPod shuffle,” says Wright. “There is also an extensive range of third‐party products for the Mac, iPod, and iPhone, including Bose, Canon, Epson, LaCie, Adobe, Filemaker, Microsoft, Belkin and lots, lots, more.”
