One of the most well-known skin-makers today is dbrand. The company creates skins that can be applied to devices like smartphones, laptops, tablets, and their accompanying accessories. Up till now, dbrand has entirely done business through its online store but that is seemingly set to change.
At the Samsung Store in Eaton Center, Toronto, dbrand has set up what appears to be its first retail store. There, customers will have a chance to check out the available skins ahead of purchasing them. Dbrand will also offer free skin applications on the spot. Though on the face of it, the offer seems to be Samsung-exclusive, you could try your luck with taking a dbrand skin to the store and getting it applied to your device.
Yes. We blackmailed the Samsung reps into performing free installations.— dbrand (@dbrand) February 6, 2020
Dbrand's first store could be a promotion for the upcoming Galaxy S20 in partnership with Samsung. But given how AKG (a subsidiary of Samsung) is the only third-party company that the South Korean giant has partnered with, it's hard to put a pin down on a potential partnership between dbrand and Samsung.
On the other hand, this opening could be foreshadowing the company's plan to open retail stores elsewhere in the future. Should this be the case, customers might get a first-hand experience of dbrand's available skins before ordering them online. Subsequently, this might further lend to the firm's already growing popularity.
