ET's anonymous source has confirmed that Google is considering opening "experience centers" in India and that it could likely happen in the "latter part of 2018". Google has already hired a senior Apple executive to roll out the plan.
Google recently did some experiment and setup close to a dozen pop-up stores in a few popular malls including Select Citywalk, Promenade, Mall of India in Delhi-NCR and High Street Phoenix in Mumbai.
All in all, Google's plan of opening such stores may help the company gain more visibility, reach out to more customers and ultimately increase sales of its products. In the past, Google has relied on the Play Store online and third-party retailers to move units.
At least two prominent malls in India have apparently received requests to set up a physical Google store. "They got a flavour of how physical stores are also important because you can't explain numerous features online", said a top executive at a mall where the company had a pop-up store for more than a month.

They had some outlets in the country in collaboration with Spice Connect, but they shut them soon very quickly.
It's still unclear whether Google will own and operate the stores itself, or whether it'll go the franchise route instead.
