Google's pop-up stores in New York and L.A. to offer devices for sale including the new Pixel models

Google doesn't have a chain of permanent retail stores like Apple has where consumers can test out and purchase the latest Apple devices. Instead, Google relies on pop-up stores where visitors can test products before ordering them online. But that is going to change. According to a report published today, Google will start selling devices from its temporary stores in New York and Los Angeles when they both open for business this Thursday.

Devices that will be available for purchase at Google's pop-up stores include the new Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL and the Google Home Mini. Other new products will be added to the inventory as they get released. 

The L.A. store is located in West Hollywood and the New York store is in the Flatiron District of the City. Both will be open from Thursday, October 19th, through December 31st, ready to help you do your holiday gift shopping.

I know Toronto, Canada, isn't as big as New York, but I still think they should open a pop up shop in Toronto as well.
