Google wants its very first permanent physical retail space to be more than just a gadget store.

The 5,000-square-foot flagship, which opens on June 17 in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood, will feature elaborate demo stations, lounge-like areas for customers waiting on tech help and a central event space for panels, lessons and performances. The goal is to create a space that functions as a sort of community hub and experiential site at a time when more and more people are doing their straightforward shopping online.
