"We are thrilled to bring Apple's unique retail experience to Boston," said Ron Johnson, Apple's senior vice president of Retail. "Our Boylston Street store has a fantastic location to serve people where they work, live, study and play, and we think everyone in the Back Bay community will embrace it as their own."
The knowledgeable staff at the Apple Store Boylston Street includes more than 165 highly trained Specialists, Geniuses and Creatives with amazing talent drawn from the local community and Boston's finest universities. This incredible team offers personalized instruction and hands-on experience for customers who want to learn more about everything from getting started with a Mac(R) to making a Hollywood-quality movie. Last quarter Apple retail stores delivered more than 580,000 one-hour personal training sessions through its One to One program.
Every Apple retail store offers customers great ways to get the most out of their Mac, iPod(R) and iPhone(TM), such as free advice at the Genius Bar, popular in-store workshops and special programs for kids. Customers can also book a free appointment with a Personal Shopper to get expert buying advice or help selecting the perfect gift for everyone on their list. The hands-on Apple retail store experience gives customers a chance to test-drive Apple's entire product line including the all-new MacBook Air(TM), the world's thinnest notebook, as well as the revolutionary iPhone and widescreen iPod touch.
