Toronto’s Drake General Store Hosts First ‘Made by Google’ Pop-Up Shop in Canada
Google has launched a pop-up shop within Toronto’s iconic Drake General Store, in what the search giant is calling the first Made by Google pop-up collaboration of its kind in Canada.
Visitors to the flagship Drake retail location in Queen West can now find a curated collection of Google products, including the company’s latest Pixel 2 smartphone, Google Home speakers, wireless Pixel Buds, Daydream View VR headset and various smartphone cases for its Pixel line up.
According to Google, there will be a variety of helpful Google Assistant queries hidden throughout the store (you can see them on the wall), as customers will get to go hands-on in an playful and interactive environment.
“Our store’s ethos shares a lot in common with Google: we’re playful, innovative, community-oriented and delightfully Canadian,” says Carlo Colacci, Co-Founder of Drake General Store, in a statement to iPhone in Canada. “We’re thrilled Canadians can physically immerse themselves in the Made by Google world at our store.”
The new Made by Google pop-up will be available the Drake General Store starting today, May 16th.
Earlier today, Google announced the launch of its Google Home Max speaker in Canada.
