Google is finally setting up a shop!
Google will be opening its door to the public in summer this year.
Google has a shop. You can buy your favourite Pixel phones or Nest devices from its Google Store. You can even get discounts on the purchase of some of these items from time to time. But there's a huge problem. You can't experience its products the way you would in the case of Apple Stores. But that is about to change and Google is finally setting up a shop (a physical one).
Google today announced that it is planning to open its very first physical retail store in Chelsea, New York. The new Google Store will not only enable customers to shop for their favourite products, but it will also enable them to experience them first hand before purchasing them.
The company says that at Google Store, customers will be able to browse and buy products made by Google, ranging from Pixel phones to Nest products, Fitbit devices to Pixelbooks and more. Alternatively, they will be able to shop online at GoogleStore.com and pick up their orders in the store.
“We'll have experts on hand to help visitors get the most out of their device, such as troubleshooting an issue, fixing a cracked Pixel screen or helping with installations...our team will be able to provide you with the help that's specific and personalized to your needs,” Google wrote in a blog post.
While the company has decided to open its doors to its users, it's not ignoring the safety of its employees and its customers, especially amid the pandemic. Masks, hand sanitation, and social distancing will be required in the Google Store. The company said that it will clean all spaces multiple times a day and limit the number of guests inside to ensure the safety of its staff and customers.
It is worth noting that Google hasn't shared the exact date of launch yet. The company said that it will be opening its door to the public in summer this year.
