Xiaomi to open Mi Home Store in India soon

Chinese technology giant Xiaomi is all set to open its first Mi Home Store in India. The company has sent out media invites for the inauguration of the store in Bengaluru. The invite reads, “Join us for a select gathering with Manu Jain, group vice president and managing director, Xiaomi India.’
Xiaomi’s Mi Home Store will offer wide range of company’s products like power banks, Bluetooth speakers, headphones, air purifiers, fitness bands and more.
Last year, the company opened a similar store in Singapore and already has such outlets in Hong Kong, China and Taiwan.
Earlier today, Xiaomi launched an e-waste management programme in India. Dubbed ‘Mi India Product Take-Back & Recycling Program,’ the initiative involves taking non-operational technology products across multiple brands and categories. The service also adheres to the E-waste management rules issued by the Ministry of Environment and Forests, Government of India.
Xiaomi will also be giving a discount coupon of Rs 100 against the procured non-operational products, which can be later used on the company’s online store against a minimum purchase of Rs 1,000.
If users want to give away a non-functional product, they just need to login to their Mi account and fill up a form. Once this is done, Xiaomi’s authorized recycler will contact them within 7 days. The product itself will be collected within 15 days of raising the request. Xiaomi won’t be charging any fees from the users for the service.
