In October 2016, Xiaomi opened their first store in Singapore, Mi Home @ Suntec City. Since then, many more Xiaomi stores popped up around Singapore, including the new Bedok Mall authorized Mi Store, which officially opened today.
Couldn’t make it to the grand opening of the Mi Store today? No need to worry. In this article, we will be taking a quick look around the Bedok Mall Mi Store and take a look at some of the new products that can be found at there.
The Mi Store is located in Basement 1 of Bedok mall, in front of Hot Tomato Express. (Speaking of Hot Tomato Express, influencers and Mi Fan Club members were given a treat there. The chicken wings were juicy and tender. Yummy!)
If you were at the Bedok Mall this morning, you may have notice the super long queue outside of Mi Store. Why is everyone queuing? To celebrate its grand opening, Mi Store Bedok Mall has some amazing deals for customers, including S$99 phones.
At 11:30AM, the celebration commenced with cutting of ribbons and lion dance performance. After the first customer (who queued outside since 8AM) made her purchase, the Mi Store opened its doors to everyone else waiting outside.
Time to explore the new Mi Store! Xiaomi’s most popular products are here: Mi and Redmi smartphones, Mi power banks, Mi Headphones, as well as the Mi Band 2.
There are also products that were previously unavailable in Singapore, like Mi Notebook Pro, Mi Laser Projector and Mi Induction Rice Cooker. Note that some of these are export sets, so do ask Mi Store about warranty before purchasing.
The Bedok Mi Store also sells some pretty bizarre stuff you would never expect from Xiaomi, like towels, sunglasses and umbrella. There is also a Lego Mindstorms-like robot, which looks super cool and is very affordable at only S$129.
But perhaps the most exciting product in the Mi Store is the one hidden at a corner, behind a pillar, sitting in large cardboard boxes: the 43″ Mi TV. There were no display sets of the TV in the store and even the price tag was nowhere to be seen…
While the things here are costlier than they are in China (due to shipping, rental, etc…), I really appreciate the fact that Xiaomi is bringing more and more products into Singapore.
Congrats to Mi Singapore and Era International Network on the opening of the new Mi Store at Bedok Mall!
