Michigan has 4 Apple stores. All of which are at least 30-40 minutes from metro Detroit. So for anyone near or south of Detroit, you have trek to make to get to a store. A store should be opened either in Detroit, or south between Detroit and Ohio.

I refuse to go into an apple store again...
Last time I was in one of those I was treated like a child...

I'll be looking forward to the inevitable article, "Apple expects to close over 100 stores in 2014". Once you reach the top, the only way is DOWN!

PC FTW!

I just sit outside the apple store and hog all the bandwidth on my laptop on Sundays. 100 gigabytes of HD videos downloaded so far this year! The 'genius' bar don't even bother me when i do.

What do you expect when their flagship ipads are targeted towards people aged 0 - 5 ?

At least a lot of hipsters with learning disabilities will be able to find jobs as geniuses.

Most any retailer will use income demographics and transportation routes to select store locations. Micro Center, which also sells Apple products, only has one store in Madison Heights (NW of Detroit). You're not going to get the Apple "experience" with them since they also sell PCs and many DiY parts.

PCs are less dependent on retail since there is more than one manufacturer. Even with the availability of mail-order systems from the likes of Dell and HP, there is the Computer Direct chain in the Detroit area (http://www.computerdirectcorp.com) that sells PCs (including Linux systems). But many other retailers including Computer City, CompUSA, and Circuit City have failed. Best Buy may be next.

Computer City only failed because CompUSA bought them out, and then there were TWO CompUSAs on the SAME STREET (John R) within a mile of each other...

Oh, and the economy hit the greatest recession of my lifetime...

MicroCenter was better than CompUSA was, but I think had the economy not tanked, we would have kept some of the other retailers...

Apple should be careful not to expand too fast, because this kind of expand anywhere mentality ends up hurting.
