Are brick and mortar stores dead? Not quite. Courts has redesigned its flagship Megastore in Tampines to provide shoppers with a more immersive experience, featuring various experiential zones where they can try out products first-hand or get inspiration for their home decor. Spanning a total of 136,000 square feet over three floors, the Megastore will officiate the completed revamp on 11 November, so you can check it out for yourself real soon (with special offers too).
All things digital on the third floor! Head to the top to satisfy your inner geek.
The first thing you see when you step into the main atrium is the three-by-three grid of 55-inch displays. It's topped by a sprawling 86-inch screen, and both displays will feature the latest updates from Courts and LG.
Gadget lovers will like the third floor, where they'll find everything ranging from laptops and smartphones to gaming peripherals. Looking for Apple products? There's an area dedicated to exactly that.
There's a wide range of laptops to pick from here, so you'd best have done your research! In fact, you'll get a free Xbox One worth S$499 with every purchase of a gaming laptop for the next four weeks.
There's an entire wall of LG OLED TVs for you to feast your eyes on.
Samsung's QLED TVs sit beside the LG models, so you can immediately compare between the two panel types. Another nice touch is the inclusion of the latest 4K Netflix content on some of the TVs, so you can get a taste of what your home viewing experience will be like. This is the first official collaboration with Netflix for a superstore.
There's even a small mockup of a living room to let you experience LG's various home theater setups in person.
The store is stocked with a huge variety of TVs, ranging from 32- to 100-inch panels and 1080p to 4K resolutions. Come see for yourself if HDR is worth all the hype!
Remember the Harvey Norman Games Hub? The Courts Megastore has something similar as well, and there's even a dedicated area that can host 5v5 tournaments.
There's also the mandatory curved display showcase, featuring the expansive 49-inch Samsung CHG90 QLED gaming monitor. It has a 3,840 x 1,080-pixel resolution and 144Hz refresh rate, so gaming on this thing will be quite a different experience entirely.
Action photography buffs will appreciate the large GoPro showcase area, where you can buy everything from the latest cameras to the Karma drone.
It's not just TVs and laptops that are on display, and there's plenty to look at in the photography department as well.
Wondering what the smart home is all about? The Samsung Open House 2.0 lets you experience it for yourself, courtesy of a range of Samsung digital appliances. Fridges, aircon, washing machines, robot vacuum cleaners, TVs and more come together to let you explore the connected possibilities.
There are even electric scooters if you want them!
There's a counter just for GURU, a service offered by Courts that gives shoppers access to over 100 repair and maintenance services. It covers over 20 home product categories, including things like smart home configuration and mobile phone repairs. The best part is that you don't have to buy something from Courts to use GURU, and anyone can take advantage of it.
Courts is also launching a revamped online store in tandem with its Megastore makeover. The new web store offers over 17,000 different products, and shoppers now have the option to click-and-collect, where they buy items online and head down to a designated counter to collect them.
Courts Megastore is located at 50 Tampines North Drive 2, S'pore 528766. Shuttle busses are available from select MRT stations.
