Microsoft Store opening soon in Westchester, NY

WP Central

Microsoft is set to open a new store at Westchester in New York, and according to the construction manager on-site it's set to open "very soon" indeed. We've previously looked at an unofficial list of Microsoft Stores that are to be revealed in the states and the software giant has also recently opened a store in Freehold, NY.

New York Metro has a job listing for a Retail Store Teacher position at the Westchester store, should you be interested in such a career with the software giant. More information will be published when the store is open and ready for business, so stay tuned and take a look at the above photo of the retail store under construction.

Thanks, Sean, for the heads up!

Microsoft Store opening soon in Westchester, NY


Unfortunately a few Microsoft stores don't make it worth leaving my job family and friends for.. Maybe in a year or 2!

If you ever have the chance to visit one, they are not like apple stores, they are techy, but the store is so much brighter and more colourful - all postitve things. Not like the dark and dingy look of Apple Stores.

Dark and Dingy? The two stores I've been to (Perth & Sydney) use a lot of glass (especially in those all-glass stairs), white everywhere, and are filled with light. I dislike Apple immensely but their stores look great...

Please, lets try not to contribute to the A word here in the WPCentral forum; Especially with negative overtones like CNet and other have toward MS

Why not? Im not at all an apple fan, but the whole point of a comments section is to state our opinions about not only our company, but also it's comparison with the competition. Btw I posted a pic of my visit to the ms store on my fb one time and had a 52 comment argument with like 4 people telling me it was the exact clone of an apple store. Nosir, though it may be similar, its quite different.

Wait, so we can only display hatred and animosity towards Apple even though just the fact we're registered members on a WP fansite suggests we obviously support MS more? Good one! I'll have to support the previous poster in his observation that Apple stores are far from dark...though I prefer MS' products I have to admit Apple's stores do look rather nice and well lit IMO

We need one in every area that an Apple Store is located here in the UK....
Would be nice to have at least one in Midlands

Apple store sucks so boring and when you come in you see these phony they say genius hahhaha yeah right salesperson. Microsoft is opening everywhere because are requesting it and that's a very good sign Microsoft gonna be on top again.

+infinity It is as if Microsoft does not know NYC exists. (I know Xbox launches stuff in NYC but they operate separately from the rest of Microsoft)

My wife's parents live in Westchester and we go there often. I will definitely be using that store to get my Windows Surface tablet! :)

I'll keep tabs on the opening of this store.  Maybe when opening day is known we can schedule a reader meet up for anyone in the area. Anyone interested in that?

I would love to see one in Vancouver but then again, there are two in Seattle which I can drive to easily. I love how both are very close to Apple stores. Apple stores are so boring in comparison.

I bet this is going to be in Westchester Mall in White Plains, they have an apple store there as well, I work 5 minutes from that mall :D
