Carphone Warehouse and Samsung to launch European chain store
Samsung alongside Carphone Warehouse are to take on Apple’s retail operating head on by launching their very own high street stores across Europe. The operation will be ran by Carphone Warehouse, but will be branded with Samsung’s logo, with very little trace of Carphone.
The stores will be rolled out in several European countries in the next three months selling various Samsung products such as; tablets, phones, laptops and the various wearable products we will see launched throughout the next 12 months.
Andrew Harrison Carphone Warehouse CEO had this to say on the matter.
“We are delighted to have been chosen as Samsung’s preferred European partner for their store roll-out. Our Connected World Services business will combine Carphone Warehouse’s retailing expertise and systems with one of the world’s biggest brands and will help us make even more lives better through connected technology.”
There’s no confirmed details on which cities in the chosen countries will have a store, but we’ll let you know as soon as we get word, so if you’re lucky enough to live in one of the following countries, a Samsung store is coming your way; UK, Ireland, Germany, Spain, Portugal, The Netherlands and Sweden
