EE has opened the doors on their brand new store in a popular North East shopping centre today.

They have relocated from a smaller store in the Gateshead Metrocentre and are keen to further their commitment to brick-and-mortar retail.
Having relocated from the Red Mall the new store occupies a new, bigger site and has been designed with dedicated ‘experience zones’ and ‘room sets’ to give shoppers a more immersive space to play with the latest connected tech.
The 'Experience' stores bring to life the future of the connected home through dedicated room sets.

Shoppers can see the potential first-hand through a curated Living Room, complete with super-fast broadband, smart TV, connected speakers and the Home Office set-up, with tech and online security tools that enhance the working-from-home experience.
Ben Cox, Senior Asset Manager at Sovereign Centros, which helps develop the Metrocentre, said: "EE’s new experiential store is a fantastic addition to Platinum Mall, embedding itself next to key retailers within the scheme.

"It emphasises the importance of physical and experiential retail in elevating the shopping experience for visitors."
