Redmond has officially reached another important milestone for its retail outlets. The company has officially opened is 36th retail store in Dadeland Mall in Miami.
The new store occupies 3,000 square feet (that is 278 square meters, by the way) of floor space and continues Microsoft’s strategy of bringing its products close to buyers across the length and breadth of the United States.
The company revealed the details in a blog post saying:
“Pre-opening energy was high, with customers playing Dance Central 3 on Kinect for Xbox 360, taking the Bing It On challenge and learning about Windows 8 and Surface Pro.
The store was abuzz all weekend with fans trying out the latest products including Windows Phones, Windows 8 PCs and Xbox 360. The grand opening weekend was capped off with a free concert on Miami Beach featuring Gym Class Heroes and Lupe Fiasco.”
Sounds exciting, just by reading about how things went at the opening.
The Store will sell all sorts of Microsoft products and services, including Surface tablets and accessories, Windows Phone smartphones, PCs, gaming consoles, software, and obviously, the Windows 8 OS.
Of course, this is just another milestone for the technology titan — several other Microsoft Stores are projected to open in the coming months. Insider sources have also hinted that a European expansion is also in the pipeline.
