Recent Washington City Paper and Gizmodo articles claim the DMV’s beloved Apple stores are less a family of loving technology geniuses than one of mercenary techies, where to work at Montgomery Mall is apparently to be exiled to a desert of shame.
The City Paper based its account off an anonymous ex-employee's email to Gizmodo, revealing “DMV Apple stores are like a high-tech Glengarry Glen Ross, with a bit of Man in the Iron Mask thrown in."
According to the articles, the Georgetown store reigns supreme, constantly shattering business records. The Bethesda store, a “bitter rival” of Georgetown, comes in close behind, losing business to its DC sister store. Meanwhile, the Montgomery Mall store ranks somewhere closer to the redheaded stepchild of the family.
What do you think of this apparent hierarchy? Have you noticed a difference between your local Apple stores?
