Canadian Apple reseller to close as Apple Store opens
Chris Duffie owns The Halifax Mac Store, and he has done business as an authorized Apple reseller in Halifax, Canada for the past decade. Now with an Apple Store launching in the nearby Halifax Shopping Centre, Duffie is closing shop says a report from ifoAppleStore and the Chronicle Herald.
Duffie says he looked at the experiences of other third-party resellers that are near an Apple Store and decided it would be best to stop selling Apple gear and focus on service, support and consulting. He and another sales manager from his Mac Store will join Torusoft, a local consulting company, while his remaining seven employees will be laid off.
