  1. Westworld has nothing to worry about. They’ve been modeled after the US Apple stores for a long time. They will do even better with all the hype.

    MyMacDealer is toast. They couldn’t even compete with Westworld.

  2. Calgary?? I could see Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver, but Calgary? Wow. Congrats to all the Calgarians on being so fortunate. One more thing to beat those Edmontonians over the head with.

    As for other Mac dealers in Calgary … My sister had problems with her G5 iMac and the Mac dealers in Calgary seemed to be bereft of technical expertise or knowledge of how to file warranty claims with Apple. Finally, after I advised her not to use their services, Apple solved her problem over the phone and sent her a new Intel iMac as a replacement. Maybe Apple sees a need for a real Mac store there.

  3. Westworld and Mymac are grungy dingy orifices making money off Apple’s efforts, not their own..Westworld and MyMac haven’t even tried to push market Apple products.It has all been on Apple’s efforts. If Apple has a poor sales award…I would call it the Ballmer and give to both Calgary stores. Your Frustration, Our fault would be an excellent tagline for those stores. London Drugs does a better job…yecch! Apple finally put an employee in Best Buy.. that was a nightmare before.

    @brau – Edmonton has an Apple store in West Edmonton Mall. I think Calgary rated ahead of Regina…..

    @al – Westworld sucks for service, for sales and for product information and offerings…other than that they are almost as good as … i dunno …Dell? But I would agree….they rate above MyMac.

  4. While I’m not sure I agree with hortensethecow’s stereotyping of us Ottawans, I’m pretty sure we are easily the largest city in Canada without an official Apple Store. I mean come on, Toronto has like five now?

    At least Carbon Computing isn’t too bad here; beats the hell out of the arrogant, hole-in-the-wall “Mac Group”…and one always does have the 30-day (14 for computers) full refund policy at Best Buy :->
