If you weren’t already aware, it was announced back in early June that Microsoft would be opening Windows Stores within Best Buy locations. The new movement will reach 500 Best Buy locations across the United States and 100 other locations in Canada. You will begin to see the launch yourself throughout August and September of this year.
The first Windows Store at Best Buy will be opening tomorrow, August 7th, at the West Los Angeles Best Buy Store. The first 200 customers who demo Windows 8 devices at the store will receive a wristband for a chance to meet Clint Mathis and Mauricio Cienfuegos (I don’t watch sports, don’t ask me who they are) along with two tickets to an upcoming LA Galaxy game and a signed soccer ball.
In addition, Major League Soccer will be on hand to hang out and show users how to live a healthier lifestyle using Windows 8 apps including Daily Workouts, Fitbit, Endomondo, MyPlate, BallStrike and MLS MatchDay. If you are lucky, you will even be able to take place in soccer drills in the parking lot.
