You Can Now Tour the Inside of Rogers Retail Locations with Google Street View

Posted by Techvibes NewsDesk

Toronto's Rogers is the first telecommunications company in Canada to open its retail locations for interior Google Street View tours.

Virtuo360 Global took a series of high-quality panoramic images inside Rogers locations throughout Ontario, British Columbia, Manitoba and Quebec, according to the telco. These photos were then turned into a 360-degree Google Business Photos virtual tour, which is part of the Street View feature in Google Maps. Customers can enter the stores and “walk around” via a series of zooms and clicks to discover what the location has to offer, Rogers says.

"With Google Street View, you can virtually stroll down the street you lived on as a child, tour the Grand Canyon and now you can also click your way into Rogers retail locations across the country," the company writes on its blog. "This inside view puts us in good company: the Google Street View Trolley toured Parliament Hill last month, capturing the House of Commons, the Senate, the Library of Parliament and the Prime Minister’s Office."

Currently, eight of Rogers 212 corporately owned stores have been Street Viewed, including 1295 Davie Street in Vancouver, 218 Yonge Street in Toronto, and 6815 Trans Canada Highway in Quebec. Another 20 stores will be available by the end of the month.

The Google team also plans to go inside the Calgary Saddledome, BC Place, Toronto’s Royal Ontario Museum and Quebec City’s battlements.
