San Juan and Cincinnati Microsoft Stores to open in November

This weekend, Microsoft launched four more permanent Microsoft Store locations; two in New York and one in New Hampshire and Delaware. Microsoft will keep the ball rolling on its retail store strategy in November with the official announcement of two more opening dates and locations.

The official Microsoft Store Facebook page has confirmed that the Microsoft Store in San Juan, Puerto Rico will open its doors on Thursday, November 1st. Microsoft will also open a new retail location in Cincinnati, Ohio one week later on Thursday, November 8th. Microsoft previously announced it would open a store in Toronto on November 16th, making it the first such store outside the US; Microsoft has a goal of opening 44 of these kinds of stores by mid-2013.

Earlier this month, Microsoft announced plans to open over 30 temporary retail stores across the US and Canada in order to sell Microsoft-based products for the 2012 fall and holiday shopping season. So far, there's no word from Microsoft on when any of these temporary "pop up" stores will launch or what products they will have on sale, although we would suspect the Surface tablet will be one of them.

At the rate they are going, they will reach Apples 350+ stores by 2072.

I don't think they have to do so, in the end much of this stuff is sold all over the place and not limited to a MS store though they have better deals at times I'm sure. Who knows, maybe they'll pick up the pace later on?
