Google is extending its reach with its customers by possibly opening company-owned and operated retail stores in several markets in the U.S. in the year 2013, according to a new buzz.
The report suggests that the supposed Google Retail Stores will serve as the company's offline in-store business to sell Google products and services. The purported stores will be staffed by trained Google employees that'll show and demonstrate Google products and services to its customers even before they decide to buy them from the company.
The said Google Stores, like the company's online Google Play Store, may sell Google-branded merchandise such as the company's own smartphone and tablet devices including the Google Nexus 10, Google Nexus 4, and the Google Chromebook.
Meanwhile, one of the leading technology and gadgets news site has listed some of the possible hi-tech Google services and products that the company might be selling on the purported Google Retail Stores. You surely don't wanna miss that site's report here.
The rumored Google Retail Stores, if proven true, is expected to open by this year's end. One thing is for sure though, it sounds like Google also want a share of the "big pie" in the retail store business success currently enjoyed by its rivals Apple, Microsoft and Sony.
The question is, would Google succeed on this rumored new business venture? It's really hard to say at this very moment, but I'm sure the consumers is going to decide on that if and when the right time comes.
