Costco to Stop Selling Apple Products

The Seattle Times:

The chain is phasing out Apple products, per a mutual agreement between the companies, Galanti told The Seattle Times. Costco had sold iPods and pre-loaded iTunes cards for years, although never at huge discounts; and Apple never allowed Costco to sell its products online like other retailers, he said. “In the past couple months, we agreed to wind down.”

Why would you go to Costco if you are shopping for an Apple product? The Apple Store has the best shopping experience in my opinion.
