The following is a post by Jonathan Adashek, General Manager, Communications Strategy, Sales & Marketing Services Group, Microsoft.
Have you visited one of our specialty retail stores in the U.S. or Canada? If not, don’t worry, we’re opening in more shopping malls regularly. The Microsoft Specialty Stores have proven so popular since we opened the first ones last fall – we’re opening two Specialty Stores today and three more in mid-April!
Our Specialty Stores sell an array of Microsoft products, including Microsoft Surface Pro with Windows 8 Pro, Microsoft Surface RT, Windows Phone 8 and Xbox/Kinect. By expanding our retail footprint, we have the opportunity to bring Microsoft products and a premium retail experience to life by continuing to offer the choice, value and service our customers have come to expect from the Microsoft Store.
Customers visit the Microsoft Specialty Store in Aventura, Fla. to experience the best of Microsoft's services and products from Microsoft Surface Pro with Window 8 Pro and Window 8 Phones to a variety of accessories.
As for our April Specialty Store openings, they’ll be at the:
· International Plaza and Bay Street (Tampa, Fla.) – April 5

These stores will continue to extend their presence in the current locations. As for our new and forthcoming stores, please keep an eye out as we continue to open new Microsoft Stores near you.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
