The panorama: The Google Store is a lot like an Apple Store, except that it offers Google products and services instead of Apple. This will include private label lines such as Pixel smartphones, as well as products from Google-owned brands such as Nest and Fitbit. Buyers will also have access to a full range of support services for the products they already own.
Google’s first permanent retail store opens ahead of schedule.
The tech titan said last month that its new retail store would open to the public this summer, but we’ve since learned that Google Store Chelsea will be inviting shoppers starting tomorrow, June 17 (which is technically a few days before the official start. summer on June 20).
The store, located at the corner of 9th Avenue and W 15th Street in New York City, will also host several hands-on sessions and in-depth product demos, Google previously said.
Google said CNBC They decided to go ahead and open the store now because they saw a pent-up demand for in-person experiences, adding that merchants in New York are also seeing an increase in foot traffic at retail sites as Covid restrictions are eased.
Employees will continue to adhere to local guidelines. For example, the number of people allowed inside the store will be limited, employees will wear masks, and hand sanitizing stations will be installed throughout the store.
