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.
