VENTURES AFRICA – With the launch of its business in the Nigerian market last week, authorised Apple reseller in Nigeria, iStore has revealed plans to offer free training to customers on Apple hardware and software.
The new store located at the Ikeja Mall, Lagos, would offer free training through a tailored programme that covered Apple hardware and software which would provide customers with the opportunity to get to know their Apple products better.
This is part of the value-added offerings initiated to mark the opening of the first official Apple shop in Nigeria, iStore Executive Director, Rutger-Jan Spaandonk said on Monday.
Spaandonk added that the opening of the first iStore in Nigeria would boost accessibility to official Apple products in the country thereby making it convenient for Nigerians to purchase Apple products and accessories.
“We are thrilled to be opening the first iStore in Nigeria. iStore’s expert team and amazing customer service are the hallmarks of iStores throughout South Africa and we will strive to deliver the same in Nigeria,” he said.
The iStore was first introduced in South Africa with 13 stores. Services offered at the istore include retail design, interactivity, customer service and support to provide an unrivaled shopping experience. The newly opened iStore will offer services such as tech support and product setup as well as demonstrations from a knowledgeable team of Apple heroes.
Customers will also get a free sleeve or cover with the purchase of any iPad or Macbook. More information on this is available on the company’s website.
iStore Ikeja Mall, according to Spaandonk, has been designed as a base for the Nigerian Apple community, where customers are encouraged to learn how to get the most out of their Apple products through hands-on product experiences and professional advice.
