I recently arrived in Bangalore for a few day visit and drove past one of the new Staples office superstores. Walking into the store, I noticed all of the Staples branded items readily available at Staples stores in the US. What I liked was Staples has an “Apple Store” within. The US Staples stores don’t sell any Apple computers but this one did. The prices were marginally higher than what’s available at a pure Apple Store in the US but that’s to be expected with shipping costs and duties levied by the Indian government.
The staff was very polite needs some additional training on being able to answer customers’ questions and understanding/speaking both local languages and English. Overall, I was happy with my browsing experience. I would have purchased a few things if the store was in Delhi but I had no room to carry any purchases back to Delhi. I was told that the first Delhi Staples Superstore will be opening in March. Where? No idea.
