If you've been hankering for an official Xiaomi retail presence in the Klang Valley, then your wish has been granted. A store is opening this week at Suria KLCC.
Convenience for Xiaomi fans
The company had previously opened a Premium Reseller store at the Queensbay Mall, Penang. This 13 October will see a Friday soft launch of the store in KLCC and is likely a test of market demand and viability.
What will be sold? There's no hints so far and if it's anything like the Penang outlet, it might focus on Xiaomi's non-smartphone items such as speakers, bags, power banks and earphones.
That might be disappointing for customers who wanted more access to Xiaomi's phones but it's too soon to say what Xiaomi's plans are. If you think KLCC is an inconvenient location, apparently there will also be a store opening at IOI City Mall.
