Samsung Experience Store in London Shuts Down
Samsung Experience Store is a place where consumers find the latest Galaxy products to interact with demos and consult with expert customer service crew at the Samsung Experience Shop. But we have heard recently that Samsung Experience Store is too low-keyed, as they struggle to compete with the Apple Store on high-end streets and in shopping malls. The Samsung store in London which occupies a large and outstanding area at the Westfield Stratford City shopping center has been permanently closed!
Evidently, Samsung’s smartphone sales has dropped in many major markets. Even with Samsung’s flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S5 strived to meet its benchmark that was set by its extremely strong predecessors. Furthermore, Samsung has stopped selling their laptops around Europe due to lack of market demands. And this way back in September.
The Westfield Stratford City shopping mall is located at East London and was once home of Samsung Experience Store – the place is huge and quite expensive. Samsung has put a lot of sweat into popularizing its Experience Stores and made it the commonly known destination for customers to purchase the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy S5 when it launched. But, there are nine more remaining Samsung stores in the UK that are going nowhere.
Samsung mentioned a statement to The Verge saying that, “We remain fully committed to the operation of the remaining nine Samsung Experience Stores across the UK, and wish to reassure our customers that those stores will not be affected by this decision.” But it’s a bit hazy about how this closure and rejection sales will alter Samsung’s plan to open 60 new retail stores around Europe.
Samsung hopes to make their Galaxy line-up as popular as it once before with the Galaxy S6 next year. The expectation on the device are likely to be delivered into a premium design that could finally leave the dingy plastic and replace it with the all-aluminium form. The Galaxy S6 is said to be announced early next year by Samsung right after the Mobile World Congress, and they are likely to go on sale starting April 2015.
