Microsoft may have been opening more retail stores over the months in hopes of having places to offer its shiny new Windows RT and Windows 8-based tablets, Surface RT and Surface Pro. However, Microsoft has a temporary way of ensuring its sales even without actual stores.
We've learned recently that “Holiday Stores” is the name Microsoft has given to shopping centers and malls across the US and will traditionally serve as a counter for all your Microsoft purchases and queries until an actual Microsoft retail store opens in your area. In this case; the photos included in this article are from the Holiday Store in St. Louis, Missouri, where two Microsoft kiosks are being used to promote the sales of Microsoft’s newest products.
Judging from the Kiosks, the Surface RT seems to be the main focus of this temporary setup, which is unsurprising as the Pro won't be available until next year.
