People in the US can now actually purchase something from a Samsung store. Alongside the Galaxy S10 lineup, the US is also getting its first bonafide Samsung retail stores on February 20. As of now, the country only has mini-stores inside many Best Buy locations.
There are also a few Samsung Experience stores, but they are mainly for showcasing the latest products. The Samsung 837 in New York City, for instance, will allow you to try your hands on the Galaxy S10 right after the official announcement on February 20. The Experience store, however, doesn’t let you buy one.
This is just the beginning
Samsung is opening three retail stores in the US on February 20. The new stores are located in California, New York, and Texas. Along with being able to buy the latest Samsung smartphones, customers can also get hands-on demos and walk-in repairs in these stores. Customers will also be able to get technical support on any Samsung products they own.
The stores will also sell tablets, smartwatches, TVs, and smart home devices from Samsung. There will be a 4K gaming lounge and a 4D VR. Samsung says these new stores are “just the beginning,” so one can expect the company to launch more retail stores in the US in the coming months. Samsung, reportedly, will also be opening temporary pop-up stores in various locations across the US sometime in March. Doing so will certainly give Samsung’s phones more visibility in the country.
The specific locations of the new Samsung retail stores are as follows:
- The Americana at Brand in Los Angeles, California
- Roosevelt Field on Long Island in Garden City, New York
- The Galleria in Houston, Texas
