This morning in the Walt Whitman Mall located in Huntington Station, New York (that’s Long Island), Microsoft finally threw open their doors to a few hundred willing and able customers to their new retail Store.
We were there to cover it all and the mood was very exciting as Microsoft’s pre-show gave away a Samsung Series 9 laptop, Xbox 360 with Kinect and some other goodies to some lucky folks. The line to get in the store lasted well into 30 minutes post opening and the staff on hand did an excellent job.

This was Microsoft’s 26th Store to open and White Plains, New York, Delaware and New Hampshire are set to get their stores today and tomorrow too. The location for the Huntington Store is quite ideal as the Walt Whitman mall is one of the more well-known and populated on Long Island, in addition to coincidently having an Apple Store too.
In addition, Microsoft donated $1.5 million in software to local charities (more on that soon).
In the meantime, peep our video above and photos below of the event.
