What Does Apple Have in Store for Its NEXT Big Event?

Another collective Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) event is set for the coming week, with news that the company’s retail teams around the country are planning all-hands meetings on or around June 24. The exact purpose of the meetings remains unclear, but Gary Allen from the website ifoAppleStore told AppleInsider that the meetings may have been called to introduce employees to John Browett, Apple’s new head of retail.

According to Allen, such off-site all-hands meetings are “not common” for Apple retail teams. A large-scale meeting by the team was held last May as part of the 10th anniversary of brick-and-mortar Apple Stores. At the meetings, the company introduced the new “Retail 2.0” concept that added stationary iPad units as Apple Store displays.

Browett has been with Apple since April after taking over from Ron Johnson, who left to become the new chief executive at retailer JC Penney (NYSE:JCP). Browett was earlier the chief executive of European retail company Dixons.

Shares of Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) closed up 2.03% at $585.78 per share on Monday.
