Google is planning to open its first-ever retail shop this summer in New York City’s Chelsea neighborhood. In this digital era, most of the retailers are going online by closing the physical outlets but Google has completely opposite plans
Google has announced that it will offer a wide range of products at Google Store, including from Pixel devices to Nest smart home products, Fitbit devices to Pixelbooks, and more.
At Google store, customers can pick up the orders made on Google’s online store. In addition to this, the store will offer workshops using Google products and also provides product repairs and troubleshooting services
“We look forward to meeting many of our customers and hearing their feedback on the store, so we can continue to explore and experiment with the possibilities of a physical retail space and build upon the experience,” Google said.
Google has designed the store keeping pandemic norms in mind. Google said that it will clean up all the spaces multiple times a day and also limit the number of people inside to ensure the safety of its staff and customers. Mask, hand sanitation, and social distancing will be required at the store.
Google has not shared the exact date of launch yet but the Google Store in Chelsea is set to open in this summer
