Boston and Greenwich are getting a MakerBot Store!

3D printer manufacturer MakerBot is scheduled to open two new retail stores prior to the start of the holiday season. The MakerBot Store in Boston will be located in the busy downtown-shopping district at 144 Newbury Street. The MakerBot Store in Greenwich, Conn., will also be located in the area's top shopping destination at 72 Greenwich Avenue.

Same as MakerBot's current store in New York City, the new stores will showcase MakerBot's innovative 3D printers and scanner and will feature the MakerBot 3D Photo Booth, workshops and unique 3D printed gifts.

"Boston and Greenwich are both terrific, tech-savvy communities, so it seemed natural to expand the MakerBot Store presence in these two areas, " noted Jenny Lawton, president of MakerBot.

When scouting for a new location for the MakerBot Store, Lawton stated that she believed Boston and Greenwich would make great retail markets for the company. "We considered locations all around the world, but knew these two neighborhoods offered vibrant retail communities," she said. Lawton noted that the MakerBot Store in New York City, which opened in 2012, has become a very successful venture for the company. The MakerBot Store in New York City has become so popular that it is often touted as a tourist destination and has school groups visiting for field trips and visitors from around the world that make the MakerBot Store a must-see place to visit.

Saw a lot of people browsing in the Manhattan store but very few people buying big ticket items. For your average consumer I think the 3D market is still way too much in the beta phase.
