Best Buy Co. Inc. said a few of its stores would start selling an expanded array of Apple Computer Inc.'s products. A Best Buy spokesman said Apple sales representatives would be posted at selected Best Buy stores to back up the sales program. "At this point, it's a small test," Brian Lucas told Reuters. He said selected Best Buy stores would begin carrying a larger selection of Apple products in the coming months. Best Buy, based in Minneapolis, already sells Apple's popular iPod digital audio player in its currently limited range of Apple products. Through the latest partnership, Best Buy is reportedly set to also feature other Apple items such as Macintosh desktop and laptop computers, peripherals, and software.
Apple, based in Cupertino, California, confirmed the sales program at Best Buy. Its spokeswoman said the program would start in the week of Aug. 10 "and we will review its progress in the weeks ahead." (Reuters)
