Two more Microsoft Stores opening in 2014 in Arizona and California

Microsoft has been opening quite a few new Microsoft Store retail locations in the U.S. and Canada in the past few months and that expansion will continue in 2014. Microsoft has already confirmed two new store openings in the U.S. and their careers pages shows that the company is hiring for at least two more stores that have not been officially announced.

The two new stores that are officially on Microsoft's roster are the previously announced Farmington, Connecticut location at the Westfarms shopping center and the just announced store at the Westfield Garden State Plaza in Paramus, New Jersey. In addition, the Microsoft Careers website shows that the company is hiring for a new store to be located in Phoenix, Arizona as well as a smaller specialty store in Sacramento, California. So far, there's no word on when these new locations will open in 2014.

Microsoft currently has 84 combined full and specialty stores open in the U.S, Canada and Puerto Rico, along with 500 "store within a store" locations in Best Buy outlets. The company has announced it will be opening stores in China at some point but details have yet to be revealed.

Ummm, there already is a specialty store in Sacramento, California. They're hiring for existing spots. Do your research first.

There's so many people in the 209 area code region (Turlock/Modesto/Stockton/Lodi/Manteca/Tracy), why don't they make one there instead Just those cities alone (ignoring the tons of smaller cities amongst them) has a raw population of 800 thousand... We always get the shaft for crap like this.

Been to the MS store currently in AZ before. Nothing special to be honest. Just like the Apple stores. I can walk in to other stores and see the same products.

No love for Europe as usual.

Does Europe get any love from anyone as far as tech goes? But hey, at least you aren't Australia .

EU has population of about 500 millions
AUS+NZ is roughly 30 millions ...
Given they still havent noticed Europe, I guess it will take a few more decades for MS to realise there's a country down under

Having said that, i really hope the future MS CEO will make MS more global and show a little more interest in the rest of the world.
