- Store will open in Tel Aviv, at one of the big malls
- This is a mere month after Nintendo opened an online store in the region (https://nintendoeverything.com/nintendo-israels-online-store-is-now-open/ )
- This will be the second store to open (after NYC), with the Tokyo store due to open this fall
After decades in which Nintendo did not have an official representative in Israel, in recent weeks it has stormed into the Israeli market, and is now making a significant leap forward. The company announced today its intention to open an official store in Dizengoff Center in Tel Aviv.
Fans of the legendary gaming company were forced to purchase their products in parallel import or purchase them in other countries, and when entering the country, Nintendo brings a phone support service, a service laboratory with original parts, and even support for local development companies that will open games for the switch. The new store is one of the company's most significant steps in terms of foothold in the Israeli market, and it has big plans for it. The store will be spread over 150 square meters and is slated to open in June.
I imagine this trend will spread to more locations, the Israeli market is not very big
