Xiaomi, a Chinese brand, is all set to show its physical presence in Pakistan by bringing out the first exclusive Mi Store in Faisalabad. Although the company showed its presence through online store and Zong Select centres across Pakistan but the physical store was the need of the time as customers would walk in and interact with Xiaomi.
A dedicated physical store is a necessity in Pakistan. Despite increasing trend of e-commerce sector in the country, people are still cautious about buying anything online. Xiaomi has also felt the pulse of market and decided to go offline as well. Most of Xiaomi’s country fellow (Huawei, Oppo etc) have their dedicated stores and an extensive presence in Pakistan that makes Xiaomi’s move all the more important.
This seems to be the perfect time to launch a dedicated store for Xiaomi’s products. The Chinese smartphone maker recently launched its flagship Mi 6 smartphone in Pakistan. This was followed up by the Mi Max 2 and a whole bunch of eco-products. You can buy these phones and eco-products at mistore.pk or at various online retailers.
