Al-Futtaim opens Computer Street Sanyo store
The store will showcase Sanyo’s range of technology, including its ‘Eco series’ LCD panels and ‘Dual’ cameras
Fears over the conservative spending habits of technology consumers do not seem to have found their way to Al-Futtaim Electronics’ offices after the company opened a Sanyo store in Dubai’s Computer Street district this week.
Al-Futtaim is the exclusive distributor for the Japanese vendor’s products in the UAE and hopes the launch of the 2,000 square foot outlet on Khalid Bin Waleed Road will provide it with a window to IT shoppers.
The store will showcase Sanyo’s range of technology, including its ‘Eco series’ LCD panels and ‘Dual’ cameras, which it claims are the first to feature true progressive Full-HD (1080 60p).
In addition to promising a wide assortment of hardware, Al-Futtaim says the store boasts a team of “extensively trained staff” capable of advising customers and helping them select the products that best suit their needs.
Earlier this year, Al-Futtaim launched Sanyo’s Xacti VPC-06 digital movie cameras into the UAE, billing it as the world’s thinnest and lightest camera range.
