First ever Apple computer retailer FirstTech is shutting down

33 sec read

When Apple first began selling its pioneering personal computers in the late 1970s, its first batch of machines went to Team Electronics in the Twin Cities. Team Electronics eventually morphed into FirstTech, a Minneapolis tech dealer that has prided itself on being the world’s first Apple reseller and being symbiotically associated with the Cupertino-based personal-technology giant. Soon, though, FirstTech will be no more.

Employees at Minneapolis-based FirstTech, the world’s first Apple reseller, learned on Wednesday that the store will be closing its doors at the end of March after 73 years in business. Some 37 years after it sold the world’s first Apple computer, FirstTech will close both of its Minneapolis locations on Mar. 30, reports TwinCities.com.  Originally founded as Team Electronics in 1941, FirstTech sold Apple’s first personal computer in 1977 and has been selling and repairing the company’s machines ever since. Prior to Apple products, the shop sold a variety of analog electronics like radios, televisions and phonographs.
