Apple Customers in Turkey Being Turned Away at Retail Stores as Halt on Product Sales Continues

Apple customers in Turkey are being rejected in retail stores by staff after the halt to online product sales in the country, although the exact reason for the sales stoppage in the stores is unclear.

According to macReports, the halt is due to rapid currency fluctuations, as the Turkish lira has fallen sharply in recent days, and store staff tell customers that normal sales operations will resume once the Turkish economy stabilizes.

Other things Turkish sources has claimed that stores have sold products today and that any stop is simply due to stores running out of stock to sell, a supply chain situation that has been going on for some time and has regularly resulted in Apple stores restricting in-store sales.
