Apple announced on Tuesday that it is going to open a store in a local community to help students get an education.
The move comes after a two-year run in which the company has made an effort to help make its online education products more accessible to the public.
“We are excited to partner with local community colleges and high schools to serve students from across the globe who want to pursue an education through the Apple Education Store,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO.
“It’s an exciting time for the entire education industry, and we’re delighted to work with the community colleges in our hometown of Palo Alto to offer a great and affordable option for students.”
The new store is slated to open by the end of 2018.
The Apple store is expected to sell a number of different items, including books, supplies, and even computers.
Apple previously opened a retail store in South Africa in 2017, and opened its first online store in China in 2015.
Apple previously had two stores in London and New York, which are located in the US and Canada respectively.
