Apple and Walmart subsidiary Sam’s Club are in early discussions over the possibility of the latter’s warehouse club stores playing host to Apple Store-within-a-store locations. Citing anonymous sources, 9to5Mac reports that Apple is looking to expand the store-in-a-store program beyond its existing partnerships with Best Buy and Target. According to the report, a secondary plan is also being discussed, which would involve Sam’s Club selling Mac computers alongside its existing iPhone, iPad, and iPod offerings. The report notes that whatever the outcome of the discussions, it is unlikely such store-within-a-store locations would appear any time soon.
