When you buy something at a Apple store, the retailer typically signs you up for a new smartphone.
But it’s not always the case, and it’s been a challenge for retailers like Costco to sell the new devices.
Costco has been selling the new Apple Watch and iPad at its stores since June and has a long list of new products that it plans to launch in the coming weeks.
The problem for Costco is that there are a lot of products coming out at the same time, and those devices can’t be combined in a single package.
That’s where the store gets its problems.
The retailer has to make sure it can sell a new device with each sale, and its sales teams are scrambling to get the new product out on time.
Costco needs to keep a closer eye on its stores to make certain the devices are ready to ship.
Costco could be using Apple as a marketing tool.
Costco’s sales team is focused on making sure it doesn’t sell the same iPhone or iPad that’s on sale at other retailers, said Chris Strain, senior vice president of corporate strategy at Costco Wholesale Corp. The stores are working closely with Apple to make their products more competitive, he said.
Costco also sells a number of other Apple products like the iPod touch and iPad mini, which are still not compatible with Apple Watch models.
But the retailer’s strategy is more about selling the same products and the same experiences as Apple, Strain said.
That way, the store will be able to keep customers coming back.
Costco was one of the first retailers to get its Apple Watch last month.
But Strain wouldn’t discuss the retailer or its strategy for selling the Apple Watch at the moment.
Apple has said that it’s looking to develop new products and sell them in its stores, but no specific product has been announced.
The retail giant has been trying to increase its sales by partnering with local stores.
Costco is one of a handful of retailers that have said that they plan to offer Apple Watch watches and iPads in the future, but Strain would not provide any specifics on that strategy.
The new Apple Watches are expected to be announced later this week at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
