Apple makes first distribution deal with Middle Eastern retail outlet

Apple has signed an agreement with Saudi Arabian bookshop Jarir to sell Apple products through the outlet. This deal is the first of its kind between Apple and a retail outlet in the Middle East. The arrangement could lead to better prices on Apple products, according to Al Arabiya News:

In an interview with Al Arabiya News Channel, Jarir's chairman, Mohammad al-Aqeel, said that this agreement will allow the prices of Apple products sold at Jarir branches to be slightly reduced.

Jarir has previously sold Apple products, though they had to be acquired through third-party retailers, a process that took three to six months.
