Best Buy to Add Samsung mini-stores

Best Buy to Add Samsung mini-stores
Geeks Union

The battles between Apple and Samsung have been heating up for a while, and there is a new battleground for the two foes — the aisles of Best Buy stores. Geek.com reported this morning that some high-traffic Best Buy stores have been given orders to remove two aisles next to the mobile section of their stores to make room for a Samsung “store within a store.”

At this time, Best Buy stores include an Apple mini-store where customers can browse and buy their favorite Apple products and accessories. The first wave of the Samsung mini-stores will be done in time for the release of the Galaxy S4 next month, but it’s expected that the content and ubiquity of the stores will later in the year. By then, other Samsung phones and tablets will be added to the mix of products, and the mini-stores should be in every Best Buy.

Like the Apple mini-stores, the Samsung stores will be manned by Best Buy employees specially trained to answer questions about the company’s products and to assist customers in making purchasing decisions. Samsung has been opening its own “Samsung Experience Stores” in major cities around the globe to market its tablet, smartphone, PC and HDTV products, but the stores haven’t achieved the success of Apple’s retail outlets.

While the Samsung mini-stores are sure to give their Apple counterparts a lot of competition, the move will definitely benefit Best Buy by furthering its reputation as the place to go for mobile technology.

That is going to be interesting. We have had two Best Buy stories in our area close down in the past few years. I wonder if we are going to get something different than takes over (like a Fry's).

I hope that the staff dedicated to the new Samsung section will be well trained on their products. Also, I hope he is easier to find than the Best Buy Apple person.

I don't know if Samsung will be able to emulate the Apple experience, but it's sure going to be fun to see them try. In any case this is definitely a smart move on Best Buy's part.

I love Samsung products as much as I do Apple, so I think this is great. It sounds to me as if Best Buy is quickly becoming the Walmart Superstore of electronics!

This is good news for consumers, especially now it seems we want to do more and more of our shopping in one place. I use a mix of gadgets from both big brands, so looking for a new Samsung phone there will be fun.

So BestBuy stores would still have the Apple mini-stores, right?  Having both is fine.  I think Apple can handle the competition and it might even boost sales, as customers can actually compare two products side-by-side.  Interesting to see this move from Samsung, though.  They're getting very popular, I guess.
