Hammerson announced today that leading consumer electronics brand Samsung is to open a new Samsung Experience Store in its flagship destination Cabot Circus, in Bristol. The new 5,000 sq ft unit is expected to open in the Spring of 2020.
The new store will bring the brand’s latest mobile technologies to life, and showcase how multiple Samsung devices and services come together to deliver a complete and harmonised experience; making consumers lives easier, more convenient, and more efficient. The final design of the unit is still to be confirmed, but it is expected to include a number of Samsung’s unique curated experiences.
Cabot Circus has welcomed a number of high profile brands already in 2019, including Tortilla and Typo, and has also announced that D&D London is to launch a new 13,000 sq ft restaurant and events venue within the landmark Quakers Friars Piazza. The new location will be D&D’s first site in the South West.
Iain Mitchell, UK Commercial Director at Hammerson, said: “Samsung leads the pack when it comes to delivering a unique and memorable in-store experience that enables consumers to really immerse themselves in its products. Across our portfolio, we’re constantly looking to introduce brands that deliver something fresh and new, and Samsung does all that and more. The new store is sure to be a footfall driver, and will really complement the broader technology offer at the destination. It is a real vote of confidence in Cabot Circus that a leading brand like Samsung has chosen to open in this destination.”
Andy Webb, Director of Samsung Experience Stores, said: “We’re really excited to bring a new Samsung Experience Store to Bristol’s Cabot Circus, with a wide range of services to our customers. We’ll be bringing our newest product line-ups, as well as offering visitors unique Galaxy workshops and unrivalled tech support so they can learn and explore our industry-leading devices all in one space”.
