Even with a network of 273 locations around the world, it’s possible that a loyal Apple store visitor might need to order something from the company’s on-line store. Now it’s confirmed—your on-line order will be credited to the revenue of any Apple retail store, but only if you use the store’s special on-line order Web page. In fact, this ordering technique is frequently used by Apple store employees to help store customers purchase out-of-stock or specialized products. If you’re ordering a build-to-order laptop or need something that the stores don’t carry, credit your on-line purchase to Apple’s retail segment and your favorite store location by using their special Web address: http://store.apple.com/storename. You can find official store names in the URL of their individual Web pages, listed here.
