Google's first retail store tipped on Greene Street in Manhattan
With the success that Apple has had with its retail stores around the world, it's no surprise that competitors want their own retail outlets. Microsoft hasn’t had much in the way of luck with its retail locations. Google is also rumored to be getting ready to try its hand at a retail store reports 9to5Google.
A rumor is going around right now that Google is looking at a retail space located at 131 Greene Street in Manhattan. The address is in the popular and high-end SoHo district. The retail spot Google is said to be eyeing is 4100 square feet and located between Tiffany and Stella McCartney stores.
The Google location is also only a block from the Apple Store in Manhattan. That will give Google a retail presence literally right up the street. If the deal happens this will be the first permanent brick and mortar location for Google.
It’s unclear what Google would highlight in its stores. Presumably, it would have Google Glass, Nexus devices, and Android hardware from other partners. Experts in the retail space claim that Google is close to signing the lease on the location.
I wonder if Google signs this lease if it will quickly open other retail locations, or play it safe and see how things go with this one store for a while. Google also has the barges that are tipped to be retail locations of sorts.
