Canon stores to be announced next week

We’ve received some more information about the upcoming Canon stores. The announcement should come on Tuesday, January 15, 2013.


We’re told that the stores will be called “Canon Imaging Square” in the Asian market.


More than the Calgary, Canada store coming next week? We’re hearing a store will appear in Sao Paulo, Brazil as well as Sydney, Australia. We haven’t heard of any stores in Europe or the United States as of yet.


New camera & lens?

We do not have a [CR3] confirmation for more than the stores being announced on Tuesday.

Well, that's ok. I'm sure a Canon Store will take great pictures.  ::)

it looks to be fashioned after apple stores or other boutique type outlets. I hope they don't sell only at MSRP but they probably will, if indeed this is nothing more than just for publicity and status symbol. Apple keeps prices at full MSRP because they are unique and own large market share, at least for iphone/ipad.
canon cannot claim to be in a class by itself as it has many competitors offering similar products /similar specifications. it will be nice place to browse but we'll have to wait to see how many stores open and what prices they sell at to see if it is a legitimate retail option. I'm sure they will get many customers either way, but not sure what this means for regular active photographers on reasonable budgets.

Just came from a tour of the Canon store in Calgary. There's no retail sales area as such but you can order online from a desk terminal. It's a nice bright space with lots of nifty little dioramas where you can play hands-on with all the Canon stuff. In all, a cool place to spend a half-hour poking around. Less Apple store than interactive display, though. Not that exciting for pros, maybe, but the great unwashed will have a bit of fun.

What would be awesome would be to have service centers at each of these stores.

I'd bet they'd accept servicing requests, maybe do minor work (basic adjustments, replace a focusing screen, etc), but send anything more off to the nearest normal servicing center.

in China and the Philippines and surely other Asian countries - Canon and Nikon have actual stores.

you can also do warranty and service.

So hopee here in the states and hopefully in chicago, canon will have a store with warranty and service, i hope :)

Where in the city is it?  I could see making the trip sometime.
