They may’ve ceased trading in Japan, but Samsung’s beefing up their UK presence, and have just opened their first high-street store here in London.
Up until now, they’ve only ever sold goods in other retailers, or online, but this just-opened store on Tottenham Court Road marks a new era for the company. Bizarrely, it’s located next door to the Sony Galleria, but is dedicated to offering consumers their entire range of products – from white goods to brown goods, you can pick up a washing machine alongside an MP3 player on the two floors.
Just try to avoid popping into the Sony store next door afterwards, to compare products.
