The Secret Place Where Apple Hides Your Shopping Bags [Image]

When you walk into an Apple Store the only thing Apple wants you to think about are Macs, iPhones, iPads and iPods. Surrounded by a minimalist technology paradise, nothing is supposed to distract customers. There are no cash registers, shopping carts, shopping bags, receipts or pretty much anything.

Well actually, there is a spot for the shopping bags, cash drawers, and receipt printers, they’re just all hidden from customers. Underneath tables in the store are little secret spots (like in the picture above) that hold shopping bags for customers along with a printer and cash drawer. Next time you’re in a store, take a gander under the tables to see what kind of stuff Apple is hiding.

    One time when I was at one of the stores, is saw an employee get a receipt from down there and I told her I didn’t know about that, and she just told me, “You learn something new every day!”

    Pretty clever.

    This is considered news or noteworthy? Honestly?

    How many of you have been in Apple Store, ever? Spend two seconds looking around yourself and you’d know all this stuff is under the table. There’s even a secret way to pop the cash drawer under there, too. Womp womp. Guess Reddit didn’t supply that factoid.

    I found the article to be pretty interesting, especially with the accompanying picture.

    It’s the little things like this that make up the Apple Store experience. I’d like to know more stuff along the same subject.
