Samsung opens first Mobile Store in Paris

Samsung opens first Mobile Store in Paris

Samsung has opened a first Mobile Store in Paris, just in time for the run on Christmas gifts. The new store focuses on all mobile products, ranging from smartphones over portable computers to cameras.

First 'real' European Samsung Store

The 176 sqm store in the Madeleine area offers all of Samsung's latest hit products, like the Galaxy S smartphone series and the Galaxy Tab and Note tablets. Eight people assist customers in the South Korean chain's first real European store – that is: not counting the pop-up store in rue Scribe (also in Paris).

 

The Parisian store is Samsung's first Mobile Store, following openings of Samsung Experience Stores in South Korea, Great-Britain, Canada and Australia. Still, it is not really fully Samsung's, as the world leader in smartphones chose to let its French partner Coriolis Telecom manage the store.

 

With the opening in the beginning of December, Samsung hopes to receive plenty of Christmas shoppers in the new store. Their timing is better than Microsoft's, as the Americans will open their first European store only after New Year's day, probably in England.
