Goodbye, Mini Stores

Pour one of those travel-sized bottles of whatever out for the Mini Store. Like so many other smaller stores, I’ve always held an affection for Apple’s Mini Store concept.1 It scales horribly, especially for Apple’s current size and demands, but it’s always been a very unique concept. And now it’s gone.


  1. I really like kiosks, and I can’t explain why. I like the tiny retailers inside train stations, I like newsstands, and I really like weird hole-in-the-wall shops. Colour me crazy. ↩︎
