what do you picture when you think of a cell phone carrier store? probably a few rows of cell phones locked away behind glass, or displayed without power. it’s a pushy environment where everyone just wants to make a sale, or they aren’t interested in helping you.
that’s not the case with the new TELUS connected experience concept stores – like the one in Calgary’s The CORE.
the store now gives customers a chance to touch, test and play with the most exciting and sought-after connected devices available, which is perfect for me. i will never know how something works by looking at it; to learn i need to pick it up, turn it on and press all of the buttons. i also do this just because i’m an annoying human.
TELUS has taken the usual retail store and flipped it on its head. designed with today’s digital lifestyle in mind, this concept store has more than 1,000 curated products including connected home, headphones and speakers, toys and health and wellness, featuring key brands including Sonos, Beats, and Fitbit to name just a few.
my favourite part of the new store was the gorgeous display of phone cases flanked by Kate Spade products – like my personal cheetah phone case. probably because i love whitespace in merchandizing/photos/design oh so much.
you might not be a fashion person, not to worry! there is everything from an interactive sound bar for comparing the best bluetooth speakers to Nest products that you can tie together and control your whole house with your phone.
you’ll also find 10 charging stations and five wireless charging locations (android) throughout the store in case your phone needs an extra boost to get through your shopping day.
