"It has taken us a long time to get here but it has finally happened. We are now the official exclusive provider of Apple products in the country," he said.

He said representatives from Apple were in the country to finalise some aspects of the deal.

"Our customers can get products like Sumsung, Apple and others with ease. We also have partnerships with Steward Bank, African Sun, Edgars, Avis, Zimoco among others," he said.

He said the shops would also ensure convenience to customers and comes with a number of benefits that include access to top class service, flexible payment plans for handsets and devices.

The company already has outlets in Avondale and Bradfield in Bulawayo and another in South Africa.

Mandiveyi also said through their new look platinum suite, they were not segregating their customers.

He said the platinum card holders would be able to enjoy personalized service.

"When you call in we want to identify you by name and our platinum clients are business people, high end spenders who do not want to spend hours in a queue waiting for service so we want to offer them relevant service. We don't want to waste their time but make sure that the time they spend with us can be as convenient as possible," he said.
