Google reported that it is in the process of opening its own retail stores. This new form of Google is expected to be up and running in major U.S. urban areas for the holidays.
Seth Weintraub, 9to5Google employee, released a statement on Google Glass, reported Dvice.
“The mission of the stores is to get new Google Nexus, Chrome, and especially upcoming products into the hands of prospective customers. Google feels right now that many potential customers need to get hands-on experience with its products before they are willing to purchase,” Weintraub explained.
Some of Google’s products are presently being sold at places like Best Buy and Staples, or online through Play digital and Amazon, stated computerworld.com.
There is also a new product that Google plans to release which would be perfect to display in their new stores. It's called Google Glass and is defined as "a head-mounted augmented reality system that people would wear to give them real-time information throughout the course of the day."
The company believes that the building of retail stores will help to give its customers a more hands on experience, while simultaneously letting them see what new products Google is coming out with.
Likewise, sales are expected to rise.
