Research In Motion intends to open 4,000 new BlackBerry stores across the archipelago to strengthen its market in Indonesia. “We plan to establish 4,000 points of sale, for customers throughout Indonesia to try and to buy BlackBerry products and services,” RIM senior public relations manager for Southeast Asia Oliver Pilgerstorfer told The Jakarta Post in a statement on Monday.
The new stores are on target for the new financial year, which just started last week and ends February 2013. Oliver Pilgerstorfer declined to comment on how much investment RIM was spending to open so many stores, but he said “the initiative was in line with the BlackBerry retail stores program where RIM opened dedicated BlackBerry stores with their key partners for customers to get the full BlackBerry experience.” To date, RIM has opened BlackBerry stores in Kelapa Gading, North Jakarta, Roxy Mas, Central Jakarta, and Gandaria City, South Jakarta.
