Apple’s foray into retail was supposed to be a disaster. “I give them two years before they’re turning out the lights on a very painful and expensive mistake,” one critic infamously said in 2001, a comment that would prove slightly prescient considering the number of brick-and-mortar stores that would shutter in the years to come–Gateway, Circuit City, CompUSA.
