Minneapolis' First Tech, Apple's Long-Serving Reseller, to Close
First Tech, an Apple-only retailer in Minneapolis, will close later this month, the Star Tribune newspaper reported. The store opened in 1977.
The retailer, which touted itself as the longest-serving Apple dealer, will lay off 70 employees, both at the Uptown Minneapolis flagship and at another store in Rochester. It will sell off inventory at discounted prices for the remainder of this month.
First Tech, which emphasized discounting, had also done repair and training work.
