The count just keeps on going up and up. Redmond has been busy expanding its retail presence in the United States, and it seems that every month or so we hear details of new locations.
And now the company has confirmed the locations of 11 new specialty stores that will be opening their doors next month. These details were posted on the Microsoft Store Facebook page, and here are the new locations along with the opening dates:
North Point Mall, Alpharetta, GA
The Oaks, Thousand Oaks, CA
Park Place, Tucson, AZ
Jordan Creek Town Center, Des Moines, IA
FlatIron Crossing, Broomfield, CO
North Star Mall, San Antonio, TX
Westroads Mall, Omaha, NE
The Mall in Columbia, Columbia, MD
The Maine Mall, S Portland, ME
Mall of Louisiana, Baton Rouge, LA
Boise Towne Square, Boise, ID
Now, obviously, these are smaller locations. Think along the lines of small outlets in large shopping centers or malls. But they do sell many of the products that are available in the regular Microsoft Store locations — Windows powered tablets and smartphones, software, and accessories.
And in case sales really pick up, Microsoft can always upgrade these special locations to full blown Microsoft Stores with a bigger selection of products.
