Grand Bend Mac Teacher store plans February opening
GRAND BEND — After working for Apple at the Masonville store Ian McLean was amazed at how many people in general have Apple products and need some help to use them properly.
“It was an area that I loved to help people with. I also noticed how many times I ran into people from Grand Bend, Parkhill, Exeter, Lucan, Bayfield and Goderich. I realized that it was quite a hike for people from here to drive into the city and so, I thought that it might be a great service to have locally so that people could learn about their Apple products without driving all the way into London,” he said.
He also noted that while Apple provides a lot of great services in their stores, it’s not always easy for someone to get one to one instruction on how to use an iPad or an iPhone or even a Mac depending on appointment availability at an Apple Store.
“It’s also great for my wife and I because we live locally now in St. Joseph and we absolutely adore the area.”
McLean will open the Mac Teacher store in February, but word of mouth has some keen future customers already. The store is located in the JDees plaza on Queen Street, Grand Bend.
