Last week, 9to5Google has reported that Google has gone serious about plans to launch retail stores. However, 9to5Google is not the only one who has information about this. Wall Street Journal also indicated the same thing with unnamed sources. The Apple-style branded physical stores will be selling Google-branded devices.
Except selling, the main idea behind the retail stores is to give customers a chance try current and potential upcoming products. 9to5Google states that Google could open retail stores by the holidays this year while WSJ indicates that stores may not launch this year.
Google retail stores sound like a pretty good idea, but as this is all rumours take it with a grain of salt for now.
