Apple is in talks to open store-within-a-store outlets inside Sam's Club, according to a recent 9to5Mac report.

Sam's Club and Apple are not only in early discussions for the Apple store-in-store program, but a backup plan is also being discussed. This plan consists of Sam's Club simply selling Apple's Macs, but without the Apple Store features. Since the discussions are still early, sources could not comment on a timeframe for such partnerships, but we know the store-in-stores will likely not be coming soon-or at all if the discussions fall flat. While Sam's Club is said to be considered, it is unknown if its parent company Walmart is, too.

Recently, Target announced that 25 of its stores will soon feature a special Apple shop. Apple is also said to be planning a 'store-in-a-store' inside London's giant Harrods department store.
