Apple redesigning gift cards and making changes to retail employee uniform for the holiday shopping season
Last month rumors popped up on the Internet that Apple will soon stop selling Fitbit’s fitness trackers from its online store. Today, the rumors have turned to reality as the Cupertino based company has removed all of Fitbit’s product from its online store.
Earlier this year, Apple acquired Beats Electronics and thereby added a popular brand of headphones and speakers to its product lineup. As such, especially given the recent litigation between the two companies, it is unsurprising that Apple has followed through with its plans of removing all Bose headphones and speakers from Apple Stores.
Apple on Tuesday announced through its Italian website that it will be opening a new retail store in the Venice suburb of Marghera, Italy this weekend. The grand opening takes place on Saturday, October 11 at 10:00 AM local time, with retail employees likely to be on hand to celebrate and hand out commemorative T-shirts to the first 1,000 customers.
Following through with plans outlined a few months ago, the latest Apple Store in Germany is set to open in Hanover on September 27 at 10:00 AM local time. The grand opening will likely involve Apple retail employees on hand to cut a ribbon and partake in other traditional launch festivities as the first customers enter the store.
