    Short fuse for all those independent Mac retailers in Vancouver. Oh well, it's still about time.

    Apple resellers in Vancouver

    Curious if any of you have good experiences with Apple resellers in Vancouver? If so, would you still buy from them when the Apple store opens?

    I wonder how that works. those stallwart apple independent resellers who stuck with apple through all those bad years and now when the going gets good, they get a corporate store to compete with!

    I've always had good experiences with Simply Computing. I would certainly continue to use them (price dependent). No way I would want to try and force my way into downtown Vancouver / Pacific Centre. Ugh.

    I would still have to do at least one pilgrimage just to finally see what these mythical "Apple Stores" look like.

    I'm looking forward to having a store here (I'm in Vancouver) but I don't honestly know if I'll use it much.

    I live and work out of the downtown core, and driving in is a nightmare.

    I have used Mac Station a lot, and think they're awesome. Especially the one in Burnaby. And I'll probably continue to shop there even when the store is open.

    Cheers.

    I was walking through Pacific Centre on my way home from work today, and the hoardings outside the old Holt Renfrew space are now painted black. That's got to be confirmation!!!

    That area is supposed to open in Spring 2008, and coupled with the fact that Apple are now looking for staff for a Vancouver store, it looks like we could have a store here sooner than we first thought?

    Yay!

    Neil.
