Inside the Plattsburgh State college store lies an assembly of Macbooks, iPads, keyboards, mice and many other up-to-date Apple accessories. With the help of College Auxiliary Services Executive Director Wayne Duprey, who proposed the introduction of Apple products to the store, they hit the shelves and became available to students in April 2019.
CAS partnered with Follett Corporation, an Illinois-based company that provides a variety of educational products to schools, colleges and libraries to more than 1,200 locations in the U.S. and more than 100 in Canada. The Apple products, original and brand new, are delivered straight out of manufacturing units by Follett.
“I was very thrilled to learn that the campus was selling Apple accessories, as I am somebody who often misplaces my things,” senior communication studies major Raushan Girard said.
Joseph Rotella, assistant to the assistant manager, said the store is looking forward to expanding the Apple section in the future.
“We have plans [for] bringing the Apple Watch, but as [for] iPhones, we are not sure yet,” Rotella said.
All the products come with an optional extended three-year warranty for AppleCare, Apple’s technical hardware and software support service. At the moment, the store does not provide any repairs or installation services. Students can purchase the products with cash, card or even Cardinal Cash.
