Apple turns customers away at retail stores in TurkeyNovember 24, 2021
Lines are forming outside of Turkey’s three Apple Stores, with employees reportedly turning away potential customers looking to buy Apple devices.
On Tuesday, Apple halted online sales in Turkey as the country grapples with fallout from a controversial economic strategy enacted by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.According to macReports, the tech giant has extended the sales stoppage to its brick-and-mortar locations in the country. The outlet claims employees are turning away customers looking to buy Apple devices, while those with Genius Support appointments are allowed to enter. Some staff told visitors that sales will resume when the lira stabilizes, though product prices will increase to account for exchange rate fluctuations, the report says.
