“It was an extremely emotional day for all of us at the opening of our first Mi Home store. I am humbled by the unprecedented outpouring of love from all our Mi Fans who started lining up from 8 AM in the morning. I had a fun filled day with spending time with our fans, billing at the counters for our customers, entertaining people standing in queue and answering multiple queries at Mi Home,” Manu Jain, Vice President, Xiaomi and Managing Director, Xiaomi. “Never did I imagine that with every passing hour we were quietly creating history in the Indian retail market,” he added.
