We’ve all been to that huge Samsung branded store in Sandton city, right? That store that leaves your jaw on the floor from all of the out-of-this-galaxy gadgets that you can’t afford, right?
Samsung’s dabbled in creating dedicated spaces for SA shoppers a few times, but unlike arch-rival Apple, hasn’t built up any long-standing retail presence. That’s not the case in other regions, though, and in late 2013 Samsung decided it was high time to set up a bunch of shops across South Africa to call its own.
Thursday will see another two of these “Samsung Experience” stores open their doors in the SA. The shops, which are located in Durban and Cape Town, play host to all things Samsung, from washing machines to wearables, in the familiar try-before-you-buy type setting. We’re going to check out the Durban store on Thursday, but if you’re close to one, head inside to get an early look at the new GS6 and A range before they launch next week Friday.
