Samsung's flagship London store is shuttered
In a statement, Samsung said that the remaining nine retail locations in the U.K. will remain open. The store that closed was Sammy's largest and most expensively decorated unit. As such, it was the first retail location to have the Samsung Galaxy S4, and later the Samsung Galaxy S5, in stock. The tech titan had opened the Samsung Experience Store to combat the Apple Store opened by its rival.
In January, Samsung announced that it would partner with Carphone Warehouse to build 60 retail stores in the UK, Ireland, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Sweden, and the Netherlands. There is no word on whether the closing of its flagship store will change Samsung's earlier plans.
