Apple will be opening store-inside-a-store locations at 25 Target locations throughout 2012, reports AppleInsider.Apple currently maintains similar “stores” at more than 600 Best Buy locations.

Apple’s business relationship with Target is already strong — Target began selling iPods in 2002 and in 2010 became the first retail location (other than Apple and Best Buy) to sell the iPad.

It also bears mentioning that former Apple retail god Ron Johnson was recruited from Target in 2000 to help design Apple’s retail business.
