The two previously announced upcoming Microsoft Store locations in the U.S, one in Boca Raton, Florida and the other in Nashville, Tennessee, now have official opening dates in November.
According to an email press release, the Microsoft Store in Boca Raton will open at 11 a.m. Eastern time on Thursday, Nov. 3 at Town Center. The first 200 customers in line will get a ticket to meet former Miami Dolphins quarterback Dan Marino on Saturday, Nov. 5 from 12:30-2:30 p.m. Eastern time.
The Nashville store will open at 11 a.m. Central time on Thursday, Nov. 17 at Green Hills. The first 200 people in line will get a ticket to meet former Tennessee Titans player Eddie George on Saturday, Nov. 19 from 12:30-2:30 p.m. Central time.
During a high-energy ribbon cutting ceremony, Microsoft will award technology grants to deserving community organizations in the area, as well as offer customer giveaways and one-day only product offers.
Microsoft has slowed its pace in the opening of new Microsoft Store locations considerably in the past year. It currently has over 100 stores open in the U.S and Canada, with only one location outside of North America, in Sydney, Australia.
