Sam’s Club is to begin selling Apple’s iPad and iPhone, adding yet another major brick and mortar outlet to its retail presence. The warehouse member’s club made the announcement in a conference call with investors on Wednesday, according to the AP.
Sam’s Club is a division of Wal-Mart, which announced earlier this week that it, too, would sell the iPad starting on October 15th. Target and Best Buy have also been announced as retail distribution points for Apple’s market-defining tablet.
In September, Best Buy CEO Brian Dun waxed eloquent when he announced his company would expand sales of the device to his company’s entire fleet of stores, calling the device a “Magnificent shining light.”
Sam’s club will be adding iPads and iPhones to its jewelry and electronics areas.
