Staples Apple Products: While some people prefer to buy their Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) products online or at a local Apple Store, others realize that heading to an authorized reseller is their best bet. While Best Buy has always been one of the best options, some people are craving another choice. Is it possible that Staples could fill that void?
While nothing official has been released by Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) or Staples just yet, there have been a few tweets from Staples employees that point to things moving in this direction sometime in the near future.
Here are a few of the tweets to be aware of, as reported by CNET.
This one is from Regis Mulot, the vice president of international human resources at Staples:
“After Canada, #Apple products arecoming to #Staples in US. Great news!”
This was followed up by a tweet from Erin LaFlamme, a Strategic Accounts coordinator at Staples:
“Thanks #Apple for letting #Staples sell you…oh, and for the delicious apple products to celebrate at…”
While rumors of a deal between Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Staples have been circulating for quite some time, this is the first mention from somebody who may have concrete evidence that this is going to happen.
There is no denying that this decision would work in the favor of both companies. Obviously, it would give Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) a chance to sell its products through a well known retail outlet. At the same time, Staples would benefit through the ability to attract Apple fans.
At this time, there is no report as to when the products may arrive in stores. Additionally, there is no word as to which products will be offered by Staples.
For now, we will have to wait and see what happens next. However, if you believe what a few Staples employees have to say, a deal between the two companies is done.
