Physical stores dedicated to virtual reality: meta stores

Meta has announced the opening of the “Meta Store”, a physical store in Burlingame, California. Meta will use this location to showcase its current and future virtual reality (VR) technology, such as Meta Quest 2. The store will open on May 9, 2022 and will feature existing Meta VR devices, such as Ray-Beat Stories’ smart glasses.

Meta hopes this physical outlet will gain more popularity for its suite of VR and augmented reality (AR) devices as the company pushes further towards its goal of creating an interconnected metaverse. Meta will also use this stance to gauge the public reception of its upcoming lightweight AR wearables. These wearable devices will be a non-invasive, easy-to-wear, and stylish fashion entry into the metaverse that should be well received by customers.
