It didn’t take long for Xiaomi to bootstrap into the competitive market and be mentioned alongside the big guys. The Chinese company managed to earn a solid reputation among Android users all around the world. While they have achieved great success in countries such as India, the company is trying to expand into Europe. A job listing on Indeed suggests that Xiaomi may be launching a physical store in London in just 2 months. We knew Xiaomi has big plans for Europe as the company expanded into Spain already, has plans for France and Italy, and has partnered with Three in the United Kingdom.
The listings are from a company called “My Tech Retail,” which is Xiaomi’s official partner for the network of Mi Stores in Spain. The job listings are for a Store Manager and Sales Assistant position in Westfield London, Shepherds Bush. The Sales Assistant listing includes the month when the store may be launched—November. We don’t know the exact date yet, but we’re not too far off from November so we should learn more information soon. Keep in mind that this store will be the first physical location for buying Xiaomi products in the United Kingdom.
If you live in the United Kingdom near London, soon you may not have to buy Xiaomi products off GearBest and similar websites. Needless to say, the Xiaomi Store in London will make the brand even more popular in Europe, exactly where it needs it. If you’ve never been to a Xiaomi Store before, it has an Apple-ish look as the color scheme and the entire idea is just so similar. But again, you can’t really blame them. If we learn more about the company’s expansion into the United Kingdom, we’ll let you all know.
