Rumor: Google could launch its first retail outlet in Manhattan

Google Retail

A new rumor claims that Google could be finally launching that much rumored retail outlet in the SoHo area of Manhattan very soon. It is being said that the Mountain View giant is all geared up to lease an 8,000 square foot outlet to showcase and sell its products.

Google’s retail presence is currently limited to kiosks within major outlets like Best Buy and others, so its own outlet will certainly avoid the clutter and give its products more exposure. However, this is still a rumor with no concrete confirmation available from the company, so we won’t jump to conclusions just yet. Interestingly, Google’s proposed outlet falls in the vicinity of an Apple Store and several other popular outlets like Louis Vuitton, Stella McCartney, Tiffany & Co etc.

It certainly sounds like a good idea to launch a retail outlet as fans of Google products seldom get to try them out before buying. And this store could change all that. We can expect devices like the Chromebook, Google Glass as well as the Nexus devices to hit the shelves if this idea ever materializes. We will keep you in the loop for more information on this rumored retail shop.
