New Atlanta Microsoft Store to open soon along with Durham, NC location

Two new Microsoft Store retail locations will open soon in the Southeastern portion of the U.S. Microsoft has confirmed that a second full store in Atlanta, Georgia is in the works, which will join the one that's already open in Lenox Square Mall.

The Microsoft Store page shows that the second Atlanta store will be opening in Perimeter Mall, where a smaller kiosk location is already open. It's likely that smaller store will close when the larger facility opens. In addition, Microsoft's careers page shows an opening for a store manager to run a previously undisclosed location in Durham, North Carolina. This would be the second Microsoft store to open in that state; a smaller kiosk store is already in place in Charlotte.

Microsoft has yet to reveal when both of these new store locations will open. At the moment, Microsoft has over 80 store locations in the U.S. and Canada. Besides the second Atlanta store and the one in Durham, the company has plans to open four more locations in the near future. So far, Microsoft has not opened stores outside North America, although it did announce plans several months ago to expand its reach into China at some point.

The mall is a goddess on its own, it's the most necessary place. But they better beware of the Apple Store outside! haha

Nice. A second Atlanta store will be welcome. I hate going to Linux Square Mall.

I think it's Lennox, and has it gotten that bad? It used to be very upscale.

I wish they'd open a store in Greenville. There's an Apple one here...

Last time I was there, the traffic was horrible and there were a lot of shady people there.

True stories traffic to LM just isn't worth it. Perimeter Mall is a better location, too bad they didn't put it up in Discovery Mills\MoGA area.

traffic at Perimeter is just as horrible sometimes worse. Hammond Drive is horrible at rush hour and the mass amount of people trying to get on 285 makes that area nearly undriveable. At least APD has a heavy presence within Lenox, I don't know how heavy Dunwoody's presence is at Perimeter. That said I've never had need of them at either mall.

Yeah Greenville isn't far from me and I'd love one there. It would fit real nicely with downtown and everything. Charlotte in an hour away and all.
