Non-Shopping the Mall

We've been spending time at the Pheasant Lane mall in Nashua, NH, but we haven't been shopping.

Really—no shopping.

Instead, we've been taking a few workshops at the Apple retail store there. We know there's always some useful tip or different way to do something. We freely confess to not being "know-it-alls" about Apple products we both own. 


Forgot to mention that these workshops are offered free-of-charge to anyone who has an Apple product and a corresponding AppleID. A major drawback is that the classroom setting isn't ideal because, after all, it's a retail store. Depending on the day or time, it can be very busy or noisy — quite often both. To fill in any time between sessions, there's always time to look at and try products with all those helpful Apple folks around.


Pre-registration is required and the workshops conveniently are listed on the store's website. You then receive a confirmation, which can be added to your electronic calendar quite easily.

Some of the recent workshops we've attended were iPad Basics, Shoot More Artistic Photos with iPhone, and Mac Basics

The workshops are conducted by Apple advisors who work within the retail store. Of course, not every question or concern can be addressed in a single hour-long session. But there's no worries about getting all your questions and concerns addressed in a single session — you can re-take workshops as often as they're offered.

Admittedly, we also have a great time meeting and talking with other Apple users. As you can see, Grenville and his seat-mate became quick friends at least for the workshop session.

We'll make some "new" friends in weeks to come as we always have more questions and are already planning to attend future workshops.

It's one of the advantages of now living in a larger area with a mall so easily accessible and with an Apple retail store inside.

Looks like great fun. The social aspects make me think of a modern day quilting bee. ;)

I have no idea if the Apple store in one of our malls does the same thing.

It's great that Apple offers these workshops and that you are able to take advantage of them to learn more about their products. Sounds like fun!

I've been to the Apple store several times recently because I plan to buy a MacBook. But I can't get myself together enough to go through and purge stuff on my laptop I don't want transferred. Lazy me.
