A New Retail Experience

January 22, 2018

I took my kids to our first Apple store event this weekend, and we all had a great time!  The free family-friendly event titled, Kids Hour: Creating Music with GarageBand (see details below), was informative, fun, and best of all sales agnostic.  Never did I feel any pressure to buy products from Apple, and left the event feeling impressed.  All-in-all it was one of the better retail experiences of my life.  It challenged all my preconceptions around visiting a store.  How can financial institutions successfully hold similar events?  It’s a great time to piggy-back off the efforts and investments Apple is putting forward.

In these long winter months, where families with little kids are looking for something to do to get out of the house, I for one will be looking for other retail events that I can take my kids to.

More details around GarageBand event

This Kids Hour celebrates music by teaching kids how to create exciting tunes and beats using GarageBand on iPad. First we’ll cover rhythm basics, and kids will get hands-on with creating their own drum beats. Then we’ll show them how to use Live Loops to make their very own rock, hip hop, or EDM track. Kids can bring their iPad or we’ll provide one. Recommended for ages 6 to 12.
