Reader Spotlight: Pictures from the Valley Fair Microsoft store opening

Microsoft stores are opening up all across the United States and each new store offers a new avenue for Microsoft to connect directly with its consumers. The tastefully designed stores are another retail location that consumers can purchase goods and receive support on the latest Microsoft products. 

Neowin reader MASposts ventured out to the Santa Clara Valley Fair Microsoft store and snapped the photos you see in this post. The new store opened just a few days ago and the pictures show the store to be filled with consumers wanting to get their hands on the latest Microsoft products.

Microsoft is planning on opening 75 retail stores in total across the country which you see on a map here. All of these new stores will be filled with everything from laptops to Windows Phone devices and of course it's popular Kinect attachment to the Xbox 360. 

If you have ever been to a Windows Store, let us know about it in the comments below. While Microsoft has only slated 75 stores to open as of now, we could hope to see an expansion internationally as well as more stores opening domestically if they prove to be successful.

First thing I noticed.... average joe looking people. I like it. Not elitist wannabes.

It is the 'elitist wannabes' who spend the big bucks.

I still think the blatant copying of the Apple Store format is a bit cheeky. They could of designed a completely different retail format, or made it look more unique.

Copy? It looks different to me.

It does look extremely similar, but if you go into the two stores, it's easy to see that they're NOT the same. The MS Store has music, a Video Wall, Kinects and XBoxs everywhere, Surfaces, and the (i think it's Oak) wood tables and stools make it an all around more inviting, fun, and different atmosphere then the Apple store.

I live a small distance from this mall. I was there the other day and noticed that the MS store is right across from an Apple Store... with the Samsung kiosk a few short strides away.
