"We are really excited to expand MakerBot's presence in physical stores," noted Jenny Lawton, acting CEO of MakerBot. "The addition of these new locations will bring the magic of 3D printing with a MakerBot Replicator directly to customers. It's a very cool thing to be able to walk into a store, see and experience a MakerBot Replicator 3D Printer, then be able to purchase and take a MakerBot Replicator 3D Printer home with you."

MakerBot 3D printing products are showcased inside stores in specially designed kiosks that encourage visitors to experience MakerBot 3D printing firsthand. Trained MakerBot retail associates staff the MakerBot kiosks to help with purchase decisions and also provide in-store 3D printing demonstrations, often offering 3D printed keepsakes for interested customers to take home.

MakerBot is a global leader in the desktop 3D printing industry. MakerBot 3D printing is used for Real-Time Prototyping™ and for the 3D printing of customized and inexpensive replacement parts, architectural designs, art projects, collectibles and many other items.
