The Apple Stores: A Playground For The Apple Geeks And So Much More
What a vision Steve Job had when he created The Apple Stores!
His child-like sense of wonder led him to believe that these stores would be a phenomenal branding tool for Apple. Even though business experts and the Apple Board were blatantly skeptical of their success, Steve Jobs remained undaunted and forged ahead.
Through his detailed and innovative design, Steve Jobs created a playground for Apple enthusiasts around the world, a place where one could learn, interact, develop, work, shop or just chill with people who shared the same enthusiasm about Apple Products.
I don’t live anywhere near an Apple Store. It’s very sad here! However, the first store I visit when traveling to a major center in the USA or Canada is The Apple Store.
Clothes are not a priority for me. Gadgets are, specifically Apple gadgets and devices.
Yes, I am a senior citizen but, with the time I have left here on Earth, I want to fully embrace the advances in technology. It is important to me and it energizes me knowing that I am living at a time when the innovation process is so alive and prolific.
But even more important, I want to enjoy the looks on my grandchildren’s faces when I show them the newest IPad/IPhone/Apple TV and in a couple of years, Apple’s rumored Television
Steve Jobs’ playful yet passionate nature has allowed people of all ages to take full advantage of his creations.
I sometimes get frustrated when people my age say they don’t understand “computer stuff”. They don’t realize that Apple has created products so that the “computer stuff” is less intimidating. It is fun, creative, colorful, imaginative. It takes you to places you could never have imagined.
And there is no better place to realize this fact than to experience the jubilant and helpful atmosphere of The Apple Store. The Apple employees have received rigorous training and are ready and willing to take you on an Apple adventure.
Like it’s founder, Steve Jobs, they are not there to earn a fast buck nor do they pressure you to buy, Buy, BUY! The employees work without commission and are ingrained with a highly defined passion and work ethic.
I have met the most wonderful people in Apple Stores – both employees and customers. The enthusiasm that permeates this signature Apple environment is contagious. Like being at a playground.
