B&H Adds MakerBot Mini-StoreJune 1, 2014
New York's B&H Superstore last week announced a watershed for 3D printing at retail, teaming with MakerBot to open a store-within-a-store at its Ninth Avenue store. It opened May 29th.
The 150-square-foot mini-store will feature demonstrations of MakerBot Replicator Desktop 3D Printers.
"MakerBot 3D printing isn’t exactly new to B&H,” Mark Schulze, vice president of sales for MakerBot, said as part of the announcement.
“B&H has been selling MakerBot Replicator Desktop 3D Printers online for a few months. In that short period of time, B&H has quickly become one of MakerBot’s highest-performing partners. Expanding MakerBot products to the B&H SuperStore in New York City is a natural progression and one we are really excited to launch with the first-ever MakerBot store-within-a-store.”
MakerBot has standalone retail stores in Boston, New York and Greenwich, Conn.
