Apple to shut down Authorized Campus Stores in Canada

March 28, 2014

Apple has decided to shut down its college and university Authorized Campus Stores in Canada sometime in June; the company says the Apple-subsidized, on-campus stores are no longer financially viable due to the fact that students are more inclined to purchase Macs and other iOS products from online Apple Stores or major retail chains. While Apple has not confirmed a date for the closures, it said current Authorized Campus Stores have until May 31 to sell existing Mac and iPad stock. The move has sparked fire sales at such universities as the University of Victoria, where students can find considerable discounts on Apple products. Apple Insider
