Samsung is planning to open up retail stores, in Canada

Samsung to open up retail stores, will push their own product in Canada

Samsung's national head, James Politeski has revealed in an interview that the company is planning to launch their own, fully self-run stores in Canada. He told Canada.com that the company will have dedicated stores at parts across the country, and like Sony and Apple, will have specific designs and train staff itself, but Samsung would outsource the actual management to unnamed companies.

Politeski didn't reveal whether the new Samsung retail stores would have their own service areas, which for Apple, have been very successful. Locations weren't given, either, but hints have suggested the first store would arrive in Yorkdale Mall, West of downtown Toronto. The mall is noteworthy in the way that it was the home of Apple's first retail store in Canada.

 

Samsung will want to have their own stores to push their own branded products, by staff who are trained in only Samsung products. Compared to bigger retailers such as Best Buy where they've been blamed for damaging brands by burying products in large display sections, have employees who don't have much technology experience, or knowledge in that particular brand.
