More people can now try Sky’s television and broadband services before they sign on the dotted line. That’s because Sky has opened another dedicated retail store in Westfield Stratford, in east London. Shoppers at this mega-mall can drop-in and test out products like Sky Q with no commitment to buy.
The huge 1,420 square-foot shop will give interested shoppers the chance to speak Sky’s team of experts face-to-face and test some of the latest updates to Sky Q, like its recent addition of Disney+ and Peloton streaming services onto its set-top box.
The new Sky retail store is separated into a number of themed spaces to highlight different elements of its products. The design will also help with social distancing, Sky says.
There’s also a dedicated Customer Hub, which sounds like it has been heavily inspired by the Genius Bar found inside Apple Stores. This area will have its own seating that Sky says will “allow existing customers to speak to advisors about their current products and price plans.”
Speaking about the latest addition to its brick-and-mortar stores, Matthew Price, Retail Director, Sky UK commented: “We are delighted to be opening our first ever retail shop in London at Westfield Stratford City. This marks the first time Sky has ever had a bricks and mortar retail presence in the capital and this is a proud moment for the business. The shop will allow Sky to showcase the amazing benefits it has to offer new and existing customers.
“As the second largest shopping and leisure destination in Europe, Westfield Stratford City really stood out to us as a key retail hub and we’re pleased to be able to offer a safe environment in which people can shop for the latest innovative technology from Sky. We look forward to opening our doors and sharing the full experience with customers.”
