Xiaomi might be far from being a household name in the West, but it has a lot of clout in its home country, China. The company’s devices are quite popular in the country. Xiaomi is often referred to as “the Apple of China,” given their strong position in that particular market. Xiaomi is going to open its first retail store very soon in China, in a bid to be more close to their customers. The first Xiaomi retail store is being opened in the Wangjing district of Beijing.
The announcement was made by Xiaomi’s Vice President, Liwan Jiang, that the company’s first flagship store is going to be opened in Beijing very soon. Demand for its products in China is amazing already, it is now also beginning to see increased demand in other markets as well. Up till now the company has resisted opening brick and mortar stores, but that is going to change with the first Xiaomi experience store. Customers will be able to try out the latest products there, including the latest Xiaomi Mi3 smartphone as well as the Xiaomi TV. Professional help will also be provided to customers, and even a 1 hour repair service will be offered. [Image via IntoMobile]
