Google’s first store just opened in London

 

The world’s first “Google store” just opened as pop-up store within the  PC World store in Tottenham Court Road, London.

The 285sqft “shop within a shop” officially known as “the Chromezone” sells only Google’s Chromebook laptop and a few accessories such as headphones and it is supose to run for three months up to Christmas.

Arvind Desikan, head of consumer marketing at Google UK, said: “It is our first foray into physical retail. This is a new channel for us and it’s still very, very early days. It’s something Google is going to play with and see where it leads….We found anecdotally that when people tried the device and played with it, that made a huge difference to their understanding of what the Chromebook is all about. People will be able to go in and have a play with the devices. We want to see whether people understand what this device is all about and monitor their reaction when they try it out.”

A second pop-up store will open at Lakeside shopping centre in Essex on October 7 and more pilot shops are planned around the world in the coming months. A spokeswoman said: “We’ve put a lot of effort into making it feel welcoming, homely and, dare I say it, ‘Googley’.
