We owe a large thank-you to all our customers and particularly those who began the Apple journey with us many years ago and have remained loyal to GalMac ever since. We were fortunate to have a great team & dedicated staff, some who have been with us over 15 years, all who believed in the Apple brand and have grown with the business over the years.
