Ever wish there was one store you could go to no matter what kind of smartphone you have? If you live in India, that wish may soon become a reality.
Spice Retail recently announced the establishment of a Smartphone Spa in India, where people can bring in any brand of phone for repairs, skins, replacement parts and accessories. Instead of taking their phones to customer care centers throughout the country, smartphone users can now bring all of their devices to one location.
“People invest good sum of money in buying a smartphone but when it comes to accessories like screen guards and skins, or even customer support, they have to look around for places. Spice Smartphone Spa will be a one-stop shop,” said Prashant Bindal, Group CEO of Spice Retail Ltd.
One of the special options the company plans to offer is customizable smartphone skins. Bindal expects this to lead to a surge of student shoppers. With the release of $33 Firefox smartphones in India, people on a tight budget may be able to get the phone they want in a style they want, without having to pay a fortune.
