Apple Authorized Reseller Simply Mac closing multiple locations around the United States this month
Popular Apple Authorized Reseller and Service Provider Simply Mac is closing a handful of stores around the country. The store, owned by GameStop, operates a variety of locations in areas primarily where Apple Stores aren't prevalent. The news of the closures has been reported by local stations around the country.
The Billings Gazette, for instance, reports that the Simply Mac store in Billings shut down yesterday following a less-than-stellar holiday quarter. The Simply Mac locations in Missoula and Bozeman are remaining open, however.
While some local stations reported that Simply Mac was closing locations due to Apple ending their partnership, that was debunked on Twitter by Simply Mac.
According to a GameStop spokesperson in contact with the Midland-Reporter Telegram in Texas, the shutdown of Simply Mac establishments at various locations is part of a broader strategy to simply close non-productive stores. This, of course, is in opposition to the speculated end of Simply Mac's relationship with Apple.
