Apple-Affiliated Tech Store Set To Open In HUB This October

Usually, a mid-semester broken MacBook is the kiss of death for Penn State students. However, that could be changing very soon.

Penn State will open a new Apple-affiliated tech store in the HUB next month, according to the Penn State Bookstore. The new place will serve as a one-stop-shop where students can receive tech help, buy new devices, and even get some repairs done.

According to Jennifer Guyer, general manager of the Penn State Bookstore, finishing touches are being put on merchandise displays and the store will open in a few weeks. The university is currently putting finishing touches on merchandise display before the store opens sometime in October.

“We’ve been in discussions with the university for a few months now as both the administration and the bookstore recognized the need for a local Apple store to service our campus’ needs,” Guyer said. “Together, we decided that an Apple Authorized Campus Store within our Bookstore was the best solution.”

The new shop is located across from the THON merchandise store and can be accessed by entering through the side entrance near the HUB Parking Deck.

All Apple devices and accessories outside of phones will be available for sale at the store. Penn State students, faculty, and staff will receive an education discount on Apple devices for sale at the store. Students will also be able to use LionCash+ to purchase items.

Currently, the nearest legitimate Apple store is located about two hours away.
