Facebook owner Meta Platforms Inc. is opening its first ever retail store in California, hoping to introduce people to virtual reality worlds with a try-before-you-buy approach.

The Meta Store will open May 9 in Burlingame, California, and showcase the company’s hardware products. Visitors are encouraged to “interact with everything” including the Portal video calling hub, Quest 2 virtual reality goggles and Ray-Ban Stories smart glasses.
