As MMi's Phillip Swanson reported Monday, Apple is apparently moving ahead with plans to introduce a new pilot program that will let customers conveniently pick up orders placed through the online Apple Store in one of the company's brick and mortar retail stores.
The program is known as Sherwood and will extend to any product available for purchase in Apple's online store including "custom configured Macs, engraved and gift-wrapped products and the full slate of third-party accessories."
Based on what we know, the "Select an Apple Store" option simply enables shoppers to enter their zip code and find a local Apple Store. Those who complete an order online with a request for in-store pickup will also have the benefit of a personal setup for the new Apple product they've purchased.
We'll keep you posted on this new in-store pickup option as it becomes more widely available.
