Microsoft opens another store in Salt Lake City

Microsoft's quest to expand its retail store space continued today in a new city. The company opened the doors on its newest large scale Microsoft Store today at the City Creek Center in Salt Lake City with its usual hype and ribbon cutting ceremony.

The Microsoft Store Facebook page has an image of the store opening, which is the 33rd such store to open since Microsoft launched its retail initiative in 2009. The number does not count the small specialty stores that Microsoft started opening last fall alongside the launch of Windows 8.

Microsoft's next large store opening will happen this Saturday at the Beachwood Place shopping center in Beachwood, Ohio. Future large store locations will open in San Fransisco, California on April 25 and at Miami, Florida on May 18th.

The company has a number of other large store opening planned in the coming months, including one in Honolulu, Hawaii, but specific opening dates have not yet been announced. Microsoft will also continue to open smaller specialty stores, including a location at the The King of Prussia Mall in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania on Saturday and two more on April 19th at the Fashion Place Mall in Murray, Utah and Providence Place in Providence, Rhode Island.
