New Dedicated Apple Product Displays Showing Up at Walmart

ifoAppleStore shares some photos of a newly-revamped Apple product display section in an Arkansas Walmart store near the retail chain's headquarters. Coming with dedicated wood display surfaces and lighted signage, the new displays mark a distinct improvement over the previous Apple product displays that had simply been integrated into existing display shelving.

The displays feature tall, double-sided, back-lit graphics, a clean-looking wood table, live display products and under-table accessory storage with security glass. The new look updates previous Apple product displays within Walmart stores that have been notoriously small, invisible and poorly maintained.

Walmart has long been a close retail partner with Apple, and the company has served as a launch-day source for a number of high-profile Apple products. The chain was even the first store to begin selling the new iPad in many locations in the United States, with a number of the company's stores offering select models of the device at 12:01 AM local time on launch day, eight hours ahead of Apple's own retail stores.

Apple has been rumored to be partnering with Walmart to bring store-within-a-store concepts to the retailer's Sam's Club warehouse stores, and it seems that the companies are also at least exploring expanding their partnership in the more plentiful Walmart locations. Apple has also committed to bring 25 dedicated Apple shops to Target stores, signifying the company's interested in expanding its presence at mass market retailers with a broader reach than its own retail store network.

OK, I’ll take that bag of fertilizer, this bicycle pump, and umm, I guess a 17” Macbook Pro.

I know it's fun to make fun of Walmart, but I've been to plenty of towns where the Walmart is their only chain-product shopping option. And they sure as heck aren't getting Apple stores built next door.

So I think it's great that these people (some of whom are relatives of mine) have these options now. Too bad these displays don't come with a '1-genius genius bar.'

Don't they know that iPhone/iPad is a "status symbol"? Or perhaps they aren't anymore? Then what is? Nexus devices?

I get your point, but anyone who buys a phone or a tablet simply as a status symbol is a fool.

Nice. It's good to see Apple expanding its retail offerings. The previous displays were definitely on the small side!

(Oh, and all the people who want to hate on Walmart - or people who shop there - get over yourselves.)

That looks like more display space than what my local Best Buy has. They have a small table cramped with a couple of macbooks and 2 iMacs and that's about it.
