Xiaomi Philippines SM Megamall Opens as PH Flagship Store

We witnessed the success of the opening of the first Xiaomi Store in the Philippines in Trinoma last month. And the zest of Xiaomi fans continues as the second and flagship store of Mi Philippines opened in SM Megamall last weekend!

We were greeted by long lines starting form the 2nd floor of Megamall until the 4th floor of the mall where the Xiaomi Store SM Megamall is located. It’s an easy 1000++ people in queue as per my personal estimate.

The media registration started at 10am while the formal ribbon-cutting and store opening happened at 11am. It was also shortly after then that it was opened to the public.

Xiaomi fans and Mi Philippines community supporters who lined up were also rewarded with treats and freebies such as shirts and free Mi accessories. One even went home with a brand new gadget – a Mi Mix smartphone worth more than Php 25,000+! raffle prizes were also given away for the rest of the day.

Customers were also treated to a 1-day opening sale of 5% off on smartphones and laptops and 10% off on all other gadgets and accessories.

As a flagship store, Mi Megamall authorised store is obviously bigger than that of the Trinoma branch; perhaps double in terms of floor area which means more space and comfort for Xiaomi customers.

It had the same vibe and feel as that of Mi Trinoma, and seemingly going to be the standard in other future Mi Store branches.

One can immediately conclude that the theme is inspired from Apple stores‘ minimalist clean look; but with customer-friendly gadget prices friendly to the market in characteristic of most Xiaomi products.

Going inside, you’ll see familiar Xiaomi gadgets and accessories. But the Xiaomi Megamall store obviously have more smartphones in display including the recently launch Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus!

Other smartphones and laptops include the Mi 6, Redmi 5, Redmi Note 5A, Redmi 5 and 5 Plus smartphones, and Mi Notebook Pro laptop.
