While Verizon retails stores will be one option when it comes to securing a Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL on October 19, it appears that Google's own pop-up shops will also have supplies available that day as well.
Google has erected two pop-up shops, one in Los Angeles, the other in New York. Although these spaces are more for showcasing Google products, it appears that they will indeed be selling some of its more recent items like the Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, and Google Home Mini starting this week. The company confirmed to The Verge that it would be making these changes, and selling products until December 31. This should give those curious plenty of time to make a visit to the shops.
The New York location will be open from 10am to 8pm daily and is located at 110 Fifth Avenue. The Los Angeles location will be open during the same hours and is located at 8552 Melrose Avenue. The Pixel 2 will start at $649, while the Pixel 2 XL will start at $849.
