This week's news from Apple's UK resellers includes KRCS bringing Emagic's music software to its high street Apple stores, and seminar events from both the Rapid Group and Computer Warehouse.
KRCS has extended its Emagic music dealership, which it launched at its Nottingham Apple Centre, to its high street locations in Leeds and Birmingham.
KRCS director Rob Woods said: "Bringing Emagic to the high street exemplifies what KRCS Apple Centres are all about – giving people direct access to specialist products and expertise in easy-to-find locations. We've done very well with Emagic in Nottingham and anticipate it is going to be equally in demand in Leeds and Birmingham – especially with the education discount available."
It's not just its success with Apple subsidiary Emagic's music products that has made music important to KRCS. This week, The Fun Lovin' Criminals walked in unannounced to the Nottingham branch to buy some vital Mac kit for a gig in the city Wednesday.
