After ruling over online stores, Xiaomi is expecting the same with the offline Mi Home store. At the offline store, Xiaomi phones will be able to personally try out all the Xiaomi devices before making a purchase, which wasn't quite possible with the online stores.
Xiaomi Mi Home store will work in collaboration with the official website -- Mi.com/in online store. With this, the Chinese company will make sure that potential buyers can get their hands on its devices. It is a known fact that Xiaomi's products, due to high demand and limited stock often goes out of stock on online stores, but with the offline Mi Home store that's unlikely to happen. However, just in case a product goes out of stock Xiaomi will reportedly offer buyers an f-code that will guarantee a product on Mi.com/in website even if it is listed as out of stock.
Mi Home and Mi.com/in will further ensure Xiaomi maintains its affordable pricing formula across the board by reducing distribution and intermediary costs associated with traditional brick and mortar (as well as online)storesSource : indiatoday.intoday.in
