Target Confirms 25 Locations Will Get Special Apple Shops
Target has confirmed that 25 of its stores will soon feature a special Apple shop as previously speculated, reports Reuters.
Target also confirmed during a presentation on Thursday that it will have 25 stores featuring special displays of Apple Inc (AAPL.O) merchandise, a move that had been speculated about last week. Target, which is based in Minneapolis, unveiled its "the Shops at Target" concept in New York. Items from boutiques such as Miami's The Webster and San Francisco's The Candy Store will be priced from $1 to $160 and be sold in Target and on its web site for six weeks starting in early May.
The new store-within-a-store concept means that Target may even start carrying MacBooks or iMacs further extending Apple's distribution channel.
