Microsoft hiring for temporary "holiday stores"

Microsoft first announced its plans to release its Windows 8/RT tablet, the Surface, in June. At the time, the company said it would sell the tablet in its Microsoft Store locations as well as on the store's official website. Now it looks like Microsoft is planning to put up some temporary "holiday stores" at a number of locations in the US later this fall.

In a job listing page on the Taleo.net web site, Microsoft is shown to be hiring a number of part-time "Product Advisor" workers at these "holiday store" locations. Some of them will be put in place in high traffic cities such as Manhattan, downtown Chicago, San Fransisco and more.

The job listings don't give a timeline for when these "holiday stores" will be put in in place. It's likely that these stores will also sell other Windows 8-based hardware products, along with Windows Phone 8 smartphones, Xbox 360 consoles and other hardware and software products.

Microsoft has been expanding its Microsoft Store retail locations pretty slowly since the first one launched in 2009. So far it has launched 20 stores, all in the continental US, but the company has revealed plans for a number of other stores, including in locations outside the US such as Toronto.

But it will be a permanent one. So, do you know where in Toronto will the store be?
