But let’s see where it comes from.
Ubstadt-Weiher, May 4, 2023 – Drone friends in the south and west of the republic can be happy: two DJI stores are opening this year in Munich and Oberhausen. DJI drone enthusiasts have been making the pilgrimage to Frankfurt am Main since 2017. Since then, the world’s first DJI store in the MyZeil shopping center has been supplying drone lovers with high-quality camera, action cameras and gimbals German business partner Solectric has also chosen popular metropolises for stores number two and three. In Munich, the new DJI pilgrimage site is under construction in the Olympia shopping center. A new landing site at Westfield Centro Oberhausen will soon open for DJI fans in the Ruhr area.
The German market holds a prominent position for Solectric as DJI’s largest sales partner in Europe. The models of the world’s leading manufacturer of camera drones have long been known and popular in Germany.
With the first DJI store in Europe in Frankfurt am Main, Solectric has been exploring new sales channels since 2017. Compared to online shopping, the in-store sales experience adds another dimension. Customers can touch the models on site and try them on directly. Trained staff will also help with questions.
This is why Solectric is expanding this sales channel with new store openings. “We have already firmly established DJI as a brand in Germany in the past through our online presence and various sponsorship activities, such as Rock am Ring,” emphasizes Olaf Kappler, CEO of Solectric. “Multi-metropolis DJI stores in central locations are the next logical step to inspire new buyers of DJI drones, action cameras and gimbals.”
Therefore, Solectric is now targeting the metropolitan regions of Munich and the Ruhr area. In addition to the latest DJI products, the future store in Oberhausen Center will also offer high-quality cameras from Hasselblad. A pure DJI store is being built in Munich. The new sales points will open their doors in the second half of the year.
However, the year 2023 will not stop with two new openings. Drone enthusiasts in other parts of the republic can be happy. Because Solectric will expand the network with additional DJI stores this year.
