Samsung is going to be opening three retail stores in the cities of New York, Los Angeles, and Houston on February 20, which is the same day that the Galaxy S10 is expected to be announced.
This is not the first time that Samsung set up a retail presence in the U.S. Samsung previously set up pop-up locations and there are Samsung Experience Shops located within Best Buy retail stores. Samsung also has a “technology playground” called Samsung 837 in New York City’s Meatpacking District — which allows consumers to have immersive experiences with a wide variety of Samsung consumers electronics and appliances. Samsung also tested out setting up tech support services within WeWork’s co-working spaces.
