Have you ever wondered what it looks like behind the scenes at your local Apple Store? Customers can walk-in and see the products on the store floor, but what happens behind the back doors?

Some photos from one of Apple’s main retail stores in New York City reveal rarely-seen areas, including where the store keeps its inventory.

Store workers count inventory downstairs.
White bins hold miscellaneous products and accessories alongside cleaning supplies.
Where store Geniuses work when they're not at the bar.
"The cage" houses Apple's most valuable products, like Mac models, in locked away shelves.
Products held in plain boxes. Apple uses the alphabet to keep track of inventory.

The pics are a couple years old, but they show a side of the Apple Store few get to see.
