Yesterday, we hear that Microsoft is opening up a store in Toronto later this year, but what to be heard now is that Samsung already opens its first independent retail store in Vancouver in Canada. The South-Korean giant has unveiled the news yesterday, with discussing on its aim to expand its on the store-within-a-store idea. The Vancouver Sun got a hold of this and had preview the new store, which showcases smartphones, tablets, notebooks, and cameras.
“Back in the 2010 winter Olympics, since we’re a global partner, we had partnerships and pavilions set up in Vancouver and we interacted with tens of thousands of customers,” said James Politeski, who became the first non-Korean president of Samsung Canada when he was named to the post last December. “Their reaction was ‘wow, Samsung is amazing, these products are amazing, tell us more.”
