The company has also just recently made a Guinness world record where the tech giant opened over 500 retail stores in just a single day in rural areas of India.


This is a huge feat and never got achieved in the past. These stores are bigger than ‘Mi Home’ stores that got opened together all around the country at 12mp IST on 29th October making the glorious history. The Vice President of Xiaomi Global and Managing Director, Xiaomi India Manu Kumar Jain shard in a statement,

"The company created a Guinness World Record for opening the maximum number of stores in one single day. Xiaomi plans to open 5,000 Mi Stores by the end of 2019 that will create nearly 15,000 jobs," and also added that "This new business will forever change rural retail in India,".
