Microsoft has announced this morning the location of the next six Microsoft stores. These new retail locations will help to expand Microsoft’s footprint in the US and provide a local outlet for all of Microsoft’s products and services.
Microsoft has stated that they now have 51 retail and specialty stores open in the US and Canada. While they still have not announced their plans for any other markets, we have seen quite a few hints that the UK should see a shop in the near future.
For the US, if you live in one of the cities posted below, you will soon have a Microsoft retail outlet in your area. Microsoft will be opening retail shops in the following locations in 2013:
- The Shops at La Cantera, San Antonio, Texas
- Dadeland Mall, Miami, Fla.
- Beachwood Place, Beachwood, Ohio
- Westfield San Francisco Centre, San Francisco
- City Creek Center, Salt Lake City
- St. Louis Galleria, St. Louis
While no specific dates were announced beyond the 2013 timeframe, expect more information from Microsoft to arrive in the coming months.
Also, be on the lookout for promotional material in these areas too as Microsoft will likely be throwing a party when each location opens and we highly encourage you attend as there are typically lots of giveaways.
We want to point out that four of the six "new" Microsoft stores are in fact already in place as specialty stores that will transition to full stores: Dadeland Mall, Beachwood Place, St. Louis Galleria and Westfield San Francisco Centre.
