Huawei is ploughing £10m investment into the launch of three stores on UK high streets over the next year, creating 100 new jobs.

The Chinese technology giant’s move to open three UK stores comes days after the UK government said it would ban the firm’s products from 5G networks by 2027.

Huawei plans to open its first own-brand UK store in London’s Olympic Park in Stratford in October, followed by another London store and a Manchester shop, the latter opening in February next year.

The three stores comes hot on the heels of Huawei opening its first UK service centre for its devices in Wembley, London, last month.

Huawei’s UK managing director Anson Zhang said: “We are excited to be making this strong commitment to the UK, and to be coming to the high street to deliver our innovative new devices and experiences direct to the millions of people who own and love our products.

“The opening of our new Huawei experience stores and service centres follows the strong growth of our UK consumer business in recent years, and shows the confidence we have in our future here.

“We know that millions of people here in the UK love our products, and we’re delighted we will now have these new high street spaces where we can interact with our owners in a more personal way.”
