You can now test a variety of smart-home devices at Amazon's first-ever physical pop-up store in Canada. The new Amazon store can be found downtown Toronto at on 220 Yonge Street in the CF Toronto Eaton Centre.
The temporary Amazon store will be open until December 31st, 2018 and will give you the chance to see how Amazon Alexa can integrate with smart home products. Within the store, you'll find display rooms for various products so you can test out how the products might work in your home. For example, you'll be able to explore a sample living room, bedroom and front entrance all equipped with smart home technology.
If you have been considering buying smart home products, this is the perfect opportunity for you to try Amazon’s new Echo Show, Philips HUE lights, Samsung SmartThings Outlet Smart Plugs, and ecobee4 thermostats.
Unlike a regular store, you won't be able to pick any items off the shelf. Instead, you'll need to have the Amazon App on your phone and will be able to scan the QR code next to the thing you wish to purchase. After scanning the QR code, you'll be directed on the Amazon App on how to complete your purchase online. As such it is best to arrive with the Amazon App already downloaded on your phone to speed up your shopping experience. To help save your data on your phone, complimentary WiFi is available in the store courtesy of Bell.
