Google to open first retail store to sell hardware

(KYMA, KECY/ CNN) - While some brick-and-mortar stores are shutting their doors and unable to compete with online shopping, Google is planning to turn back time and open a physical store.

The tech giant announced the move on Thursday and says the store will be called "Google Store" and is expected to open this summer in New York.

It will employ experts to help customers with tech issues, broken screens and installations.

The store will also sell Google products, including pixel phones, nest products and Fitbit devices.
