Bookmakers are offering betting on where the first physical facebook shop will be. Regents Street is Favourite

The first physical facebook stores have appeared in America, with pop-up versions arriving in the market in Macey's. Now betting sites in the UK are taking bets not as to when, but as to where the first will be when it arrives in the UK.

Physical Facebook stores are on their way and it looks most likely they will appear first in London. Regents Street is the most likely according to Betting sites with close to 30% chance ahead of Bond Street and Oxford Street

Facebook stores provide business owners with Facebook pages to appear in the store in prime locations with no additional cost to themselves. Facebook stands all of the costs of placement wherever the store may be.

Whilst this seems a very generous offer, it is thought it will see a huge boost to advertising sales on Facebook as more businesses look for the chance to be able to get some premium location footfall at some point in a Facebook store.

A host of sites in London cover the top half of the betting and the favourites for where the first will be located, including Heathrow and Gatwick airports, whilst other major cities around the UK, are certainly playing second fiddle in the betting.

Bookmakers have removed the option to bet on a pop-up store appearing at either Heathrow or Gatwick, meaning we can probably expect them very soon. otherwise, is it 6/1 and 8/1 respectively they will take up permanent store placement in either airport.
