After successful flash sales since its debut last June, Xiaomi will be setting up its first ever pop-up store in the Philippines, which will be open from 23- 29 October.
The Chinese mobile brand sent a fairly short press release to local media yesterday confirming the plan, which could break a predominantly e-commerce strategy it has religiously followed since it began.
Xiaomi says that it is its first ever pop-up store in the country but a quick search on the internet reveals that this could be the brand's first ever physical store in any of its markets which include China, Malaysia, Singapore, Indiaand Indonesia.
Below is the official statement from Xiaomi:
In response to requests from Pinoy Mi fans, Mi Philippines will be launching its first ever pop-up store in the country. The Mi pop-up store will be at the SM Megamall (Upper G/F Building B) from October 23 (Thursday) to October 29 (Wednesday).
At the store, customers can:
- learn more about Xiaomi and experience Mi products in person
- purchase the Mi 3 for Php 10,599 and the Redmi 1S for Php 5,599
- shop for cool accessories to go with their Mi smartphones
- participate in fun activities
