Metrocentre Gateshead has announced that Sky has chosen the retail and leisure destination as the location for one of its first ever bricks and mortar retail shops across the UK.
The new retail concept, which will open its doors on 19th April, brings together Sky Mobile, Sky Broadband and Sky TV, and offers potential customers the opportunity to fully sample the Sky Q experience.
Created with customers’ needs in mind, the Sky shop will be separated into designated themed spaces, allowing customers to access advisors easily and safely across the store.
The shop will have a dedicated ‘Customer Hub’ encouraging new customers to speak to advisors about the latest Sky innovations whilst existing customers will be able to speak to advisors and receive advice around their current products.
All Sky shops will operate in line with the Government’s Covid-19 safety measures, including strict social distancing, mandatory facemasks, and hand sanitiser available across the shop.
A dedicated ‘Access All Areas Stage’ will host various interactive experiences for customers, creating moments that entertain and surprise, and will put customers at the centre of Sky’s extraordinary entertainment content.
