Sony Can Just Take Over All The Gateway Stores They're Closing
from the well,-that-makes-it-easy... dept
Yesterday, Sony announced plans to push heavily into the retail store arena, following the success of Apple's stores. While Sony already has a few stores, they'll now be opening a lot more. While the obvious comparison is with Apple, the other company to look at would be Gateway, who tried this strategy even before Apple did - and didn't do particularly well with it. Well, now, to make things even easier for Sony, they can simply buy up all the old Gateway stores since Gateway won't be using them any more. That's right. They've decided to end the failing retail experiment.
