Meta, the company formerly known as Facebook, said on Monday that it planned to open its first physical storefront next month, as it works to transform itself into a leader of the metaverse.
The Meta Store, at the company’s campus in Burlingame, Calif., will open on May 9, Meta said. The store will showcase Meta’s hardware, including the Quest 2 virtual-reality headset, the Portal video calling device, and the Ray-Ban Stories smart sunglasses. Customers can try out the devices to experiment with virtual and augmented reality and buy the items in the store or later online at Meta’s or Ray-Ban’s website. Read more at The New York Times.
