This past weekend, Apple retail news website ifoAppleStore posted a few pictures from a Walmart in Lowell, Ark., which owns and operates Sam's Club, that depict Apple displays within its walls akin to Best Buy's lavish store-within-a-store oasis creations.

"The new displays could be the prototype for a rumored expansion of in-store Apple displays to Sam's Club, the warehouse retailing division of Walmart. The displays feature tall, double-sided, back-lit graphics, a clean-looking wood table, live display products and under-table accessory storage with security glass. The new look updates previous Apple product displays within Walmart stores that have been notoriously small, invisible and poorly maintained," said ifoAppleStore.
