Less than a year ago Tesla (TSLA) hired former Apple (AAPL) exec George Blankenship who was responsible for creating Apple’s hugely successful retail strategy.  Granted, the iPods and iPhones probably would have sold well in a dilapidated shack in the woods, but Blankenship brings 30 years of retail experience to Tesla.  At the time Elon Musk commented:  “George has a record of building customer-focused stores that revolutionize their industries, and he does it on time … Read the rest
