Samsung will renovate two Canadian Samsung Experience Stores in two of Canada’s top shopping centres. The company’s Yorkdale Shopping Centre store in Toronto and its Metropolis at Metrotown store near Vancouver have been relocated temporarily while the locations see a ‘modern’ refresh. Both renovations will be completed by mid-November of this year. 

“We want to connect with our customers and provide them with new and engaging physical spaces that they can visit to learn more about and experience our products,” said Dave McGregor, Director of Samsung Experience Stores. “We’re committed to creating dynamic and innovative retail spaces and we’re excited to unveil a fresh new look at two important locations in our retail network.”

The Yorkdale store will help Samsung continue to offer on-site repair services and to showcase the Galaxy lineup. The Metropolis at Metrotown upgrades will include a brand-new service centre for on-site Samsung device repairs.

A temporary pop-up at Yorkdale across from the in-line Samsung Experience Store will serve clients until renovations are completed in a couple of months. A temporary store has also opened at Metropolis at Metrotown on the upper level of the shopping centre. 

The Yorkdale Samsung Experience store opened in October of 2016 in a 3,400 retail space in the mall’s Nordstrom-anchored expansion wing. The Metropolis at Metrotown location was the first in Canada when it opened in 2012 in a 1,500 square foot space. 

Samsung opened a 21,000 square foot showroom at CF Toronto Eaton Centre in Toronto in early 2018. The company also has Samsung Experience Stores at CF Richmond Centre near Vancouver, at Southgate Centre in Edmonton, at CF Sherway Gardens and Scarborough Town Centre in Toronto and at the Montreal Eaton Centre in downtown Montreal.
