Can't wait to go to your local Microsoft Store tonight? Before you go take a moment to get good intel unique to your store. Most Microsoft Stores are located inside a mall, and most malls don't stop open till 10 p.m. (when the Halo events start). So it might behoove you to call your Microsoft Store ahead of time to see if there's any special entrance to get into the mall after hours.

Head to the Microsoft Store website to find your local Microsoft Store and their phone number. When you click on your local Microsoft Store, you can also view the calendar for that particular store and see whether or not they're participating in events like the launch of Halo: The Master Chief Collection.
