Hello Galaxy: Samsung opens second store in Oz in Melbourne
As tipped by Channel News, Samsung opened a new Experience Store in Melbourne at the Highpoint Shopping Centre in the western suburbs, yesterday.
Melbournians can now immerse themselves in the Samsung experience and play with its Galaxy Android phones, Tabs and Smart TVs and even get a peek at new 8″ Galaxy Note.
The Samsung Experience Store, located next to David Jones, will be joining Dick Smith, JB HiFi, All Phones and Telstra, all of whom have stores at Highpoint.
Samsung opened its first Experience Store store in Sydney’s George St last year just down the street from the Apple Store, and like its Sydney store, will sell everything from its Galaxy S III smartphones to Tabs, wireless audio with docks, notebooks and Smart TVs at its only Melbourne store.
“The new Highpoint Shopping Centre in Melbourne seemed an appropriate home for our second Samsung Experience Centre in Australia with its premium design and impressive range of retail stores,” said Tyler McGee, Vice President of Telecommunications, Samsung.
“Building on the successes of our Sydney store, the Samsung Melbourne Experience Store gives consumers an opportunity to discover more about our wide range of innovative and connected products from our expertly trained staff.”
The giant also confirmed it will be previewing the new (and yet unseen) Galaxy Note 8 tablet in the Melbourne store, ahead of its release in April, and will also be on show in its Sydney outlet.
The Galaxy Note 8.0 “aims to re-ignite the mid-size tablet category, providing exceptional multimedia performance with a compact 8-inch screen”, and uses S Pen technology which you can like a a traditional pen and paper.
To celebrate the Melbourne opening, Samsung is offering all customers a mug with a personalised photo of themselves and their friends until 24th March.
The store will be open from 9am every day with late opening Thursday and Friday nights.
