Boston and Greenwich are getting a MakerBot Store! MakerBot, the global leader in desktop 3D printing and scanning, is scheduled to open two new retail stores this 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. 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. The soon-to—be opened MakerBot Stores in Boston and Greenwich are currently hiring staff and those interested in working for one of The World’s Top 10 Most Innovative Companies in Consumer Electronics, as named by Fast Company, should apply online at makerbot.com/careers. The two new MakerBot Stores are planned to open their doors prior to the start of the holiday season.
