Xiaomi has finally opened its first retail location in India, dubbed as Mi Hone, in Bengaluru which will open for the general public from May 20th.
Mi Home will offer the complete product portfolio of Xiaomi including smartphones, fitness bands, air purifiers, power banks, and more.
The Chinese manufacturer now has official stores in five countries in total, including China, Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan and India.
The company aims to reduce the distribution and intermediary costs associated with traditional retail and direct-to-retail models by opening the store in one of the biggest smartphone markets in the world. The company said that all products will be in stock, but in case any product is not available, the customer will be given a f-code which can be used on the website and guarantees the product purchase even if its listed as out of stock.
The Chinese company plans to open more stores in the country in the coming months, including Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad, and Chennai, with plans to open over 100 stores in the next two years.
