The products are available online but not in retail stores, as the chain continues to gradually expand its lineup of Apple products.

Staples shoppers can now pick up an iPad or iPod directly through the retailer's Web site.

iPad buyers can choose from a variety of flavors of either the fourth-generation iPad or the iPad Mini. Both Wi-Fi only and Wi-Fi + Cellular variations are available at the usual retail prices. But as an added incentive, Staples offers customers 5 percent back in rewards points. And shipping is free.

Also up for grabs is the full gamut of iPod devices, including the iPod Touch, iPod Classic, iPod Nano, and iPod Shuffle. The iPad and iPod are only available online, at least for now.

Staples first started selling certain Apple devices and accessories in February. Customers can find accessories for the iPhone, iPad, iPod, and Mac, including keyboards, mice, cases, covers, and cables. Larger items such as Time Capsules and Apple TVs are also in stock.

iPhones and Macs are still not offered by Staples. But the retail chain seems to gradually be expanding its lineup of Apple products.
