Samsung to open first Canadian store PDF Print E-mail
Written by HGO Staff   

MISSISSAUGA, Ontario (21 May 2012) - Samsung Electronics Canada (SEC) will open its first self-branded retail store in Burnaby, British Columbia sometime this summer, the consumer electronics and major appliance producer has announced.

In a statement, the company said the new Samsung store - to be located in the Metropolis at Metrotown - will be designed to provide Canadian consumers with an exciting new way to experience and interact with Samsung's line up of mobile, personal computing and consumer electronics products in a standalone retail location.

"Samsung is excited to bring a new level of retail experience to Canadians," SEC president James Politeski said. "Our vision is to provide an immersive space where consumers can interact with our products in totally new ways and enjoy unprecedented service levels."

With unique design elements and a broad product offering, the Samsung store will provide Canadian consumers with a premium retail experience. The store will showcase Samsung's technology leadership and enable consumers to experience firsthand the power of sharing content across multiple products.

"The launch of our Burnaby location is part of a larger retail strategy designed to offer Canadians an extraordinary environment to interact with the Samsung products they're most passionate about," Politeski said.

However, it was unclear in the statement whether the store would display the company's fast growing assortment of major appliances.

Politeski said the store will be staffed by fully trained Samsung experts who will use Smart Table technology and a tablet-based point-of-sale system. The store will feature an in-store education area as well as a complete line-up of accessories to complement the product offering.

Growing into the third generation

FROM THE HGO MERCHANDISER

An independent furniture store is, in its own way, a living thing. To survive, it has to change. It has to adapt to changing economic conditions. It has to acknowledge changes in consumer tastes, desires, interests and paths to purchase. If it's also a family business, it has to pass on the business from one generation to the next while remaining relevant and profitable. Sometimes, it has to change its spots.

A modest year ahead

FROM THE HGO MERCHANDISER

On New Year's Day, almost every furniture, mattress and major appliance retailer in this country took a moment or two to reflect on what his business looked like in 2014 and what it will be like in 2015. What they may not have realized is the overwhelming majority of economists and analysts have coalesced around the same thought: 2015 will be like 2014, only more so.
