  • Awesome
  • I can't believe it, Syracuse is finally getting a store!!!
  • Nothing in NYC....
  • Apparently, Microsoft has a huge beef with Vornado which is preventing them from getting a decent location in NYC.
  • Right? What's the problem with a store in Manhattan?
  • im with you man, sucks. You would think in the city somewhere.
  • Colombus Circle, third floor of the shopping area in the Time Warner building. It's more or less what is shown in the picture above, but it's better than no store at all.
  • Yeah..... Awesome..... Go on giving more stores for US and keep forgetting other countries.....:/
  • Canada is not US.
  • He was referring to international customers in Europe and asia Posted via Windows Phone Central App
  • Toronto is not Canada; there will be two stores there now!
  • I find it unbelievable how much emphasis MS spends on US stores. We all know how difficult it seems to be for them to get real phone traction with the carriers compared to many other countries around the globe. I'm sure a few well placed International locations would be a much better return on investment. Apple stores are absolutely everywhere, literally.
  • Agreed. Imagine a store in the capital city of each EU, Latin American and Asian country.
  • It's a form of marketing. You market where you need it. Right now, u.s. Is worse. I get your thought process, and your correct. However, its at home MS needs the help, not abroad. Just think about it. Its like plugging leaks in a boat. Do you cover the gusher or the finger holes first?
  • Good analogy. xD
  • I like it.
  • 1. MSFT is big enough to to cover all markets.
    2. Asia is the highest growth market for mobile devices, along with Africa
    3. In the EU, the MSFT brand is less tarnished than on the US.
    4. Invest where there is strength and growth.
    5. More users = stronger ecosystem. sorry for the numericalness of my reply! Just way short on time and wanted to answer completely.
  • Hmmm, Bethesda's not terribly far
  • DALLAS,TEXAS
  • FINALLY, RIGHT?
  • I know right. I was just thinking before clicking the link that there is no good reason not to have a Microsoft Store in Dallas. Super excited.
  • Hell yeah. It's about time Northpark got a MSFT store to offset the Apple store. I'm too snobby to go to the popup store in Frisco :)
  • I was at Northpark a week ago. It's on the lower level taking over the old Ann Taylor spot. It's a huge spot and it's a few yards down from the new larger Apple store. Matter fact I was at the Frisco Specialty Store this week and the rep told me that the Northpark store will be the largest one in Texas. No official opening date has been announced but again a rep at the Frisco Specialty Store said that it'll likely open in October. 
  • Yeah that's what I'm hearing too. I've seen the spot. It's huge.
  • Nice, biggest one in Texas should mean some sort of musical act or festivities when it opens.
  • All the employees sing to customers on the first day. ;)
  • I live in Frisco and still avoided the MS kiosk in Frisco.
  • I didnt know there was one in Frisco. I've een stoping in Arlington on weekends while driving to Ft Worth. I'm ready for a full fledged instead of the kiosks.
  • Yeah, baby!!!!;
  • Yep, certainly better than driving to Frisco.
  • Great
  • When will it get to the silicon valley of Asia?
  • In the future, possibly.
  • As if I don't know that thing... But mentioning like 2015 or even 2016 would be good
  • Charlotte!!!!
  • This!!! South park needs something to compete with the crapple store.
  • See you all at the Charlotte store ;)
  • Especially since we have a MS office here
  • The kiosk is overdue for an upgrade at SouthPark Mall! :)
  • It's about time, long overdue for that kiosk
  • +928!!
  • Come on - Columbus!
  • +1 (if you mean Columbus, OH lol)
  • The only Columbus that matters! ;)
  • Please bring one to Columbus, OH!!
  • I see we got some Ohioans. I'm in Dayton. Got to make the drive to Cincy for the MS store. It's about an hour or so drive. Surprised there's not one in Columbus though like in Polaris mall or the Easton. We need one in the Dayton area
  • Add me to the list of Columbus. Sadly we will be a while since they put one in Cincy and Cleveland...an MS store really would fit perfectly into those high class malls (Easton/Polaris) but I work in Dublin so I vote Tuttle Mall, haha.
  • NOOOOO WHERE IS ANOTHER ILLINOIS ONE THERE'S ONLY LIKE 2
  • Two full stores and one kiosk in downtown Chicago. Nothing to gripe about.  We only have one kiosk in Wisconsin.  I dont like the kiosk stores with their limited stuff.  The staff at those always seem like your bothering them whereas the full retail locations seem more helpful.
  • Ya true but I don't live anywhere near these
  • Every goodies and everytime USA. Dame.
  • And still not NYC
  • Still nothing near me
  • Closest is two hours away. :'(
  • Its better then me, 5 hours away
  • Some 16 hours away from me. Also would cost me a fortune just to reach there. You are lucky.
  • Wow, whereabouts are you?
  • 20 hours by plane then some hours by car Posted via Windows Phone Central App
  • Great! With the Eaton Centre kiosk becoming a full store the Toronto area will now have 3 stores.
  • My guess is their dropping the kiosk like they did with 360 central stores
  • I'm sure they will be closing the kiosk but that still leaves 3 in the GTA.  Eaton Centre, Yorkdale and the mall in Mississauga (can't remembe which one).  
  • Or move the kiosk like they did with the one in edmonton.
  • Square One in sauga
  • And still nothing in Victoria. Le sigh.
  • Take the Clipper down to Seattle. We have 2 stores and a kiosk downtown.
  • You know, I just might. I have an interest in taking the Clipper anyway. :-)
  • GTA has 3 stores, that's great. Would like to see other big Canadian cities get some stores... Vancouver, Montreal. Congrats for Calgary
  • I had no idea there was one in square one. I avoid Yorkdale like the plague... The Eaton Centre will be pretty convenient for me though.
  • Vancouver has one...well Burnaby anyway. I've been there.  :). http://content.microsoftstore.com/en-ca/detail/metropolisatmetrotown
  • pretty busy last Sunday too! SP3 is awesome.... Can't wait for the i7 and docking station to replace my Lenovo helix and ThinkPad usb3 dock
  • Would be nice if they put it on the top level, and not tucked away downstairs somewhere
  • I know my home of London, Ontario isn't the biggest market, but I would love for a Microsoft Store to open here. I guess I'll have to settle for the mini store in Best Buy where most of them don't know shit about the products.
  • Tell me about it. We have an Apple store, we need a Microsoft store now. Best buy and future shop in London is a joke when seeking out Microsoft product.
  • KW's bigger(& the center of the tech world in Ontario with 1 big sinking ship) but still it makes sense they target the gta though I would've preferred Mississauga.
  • Mississauga already has one.  Town Centre I believe.
  • Mississauga's Microsoft store is at Square One.  And it's a great store!
  • Its been a while guess I missed that. To bad they didnt put a little more effort into their app before killing it off.
  • Yeah, sucks. Even one in Kitchener/Waterloo would be nice.
  • LA and NY are gonna have how many now and Chicago still has just the two? I'm getting tired of driving to Oak Brook, why can't they come to Orland Square already
  • ^^This! I live in Lansing and Orland would be ideal..
  • Groovy... ...maybe we'll get another one around here someday. The one we have here is always busy. I think people just like the atmoshpere of the place. Very clean, techy with some very sharp people working there.
  • I want a store in Raleigh, NC. :(
  • You have a store coming soon to Durham, that's close enough to Raleigh..
  • Agreed! Streets at Southpoint is a pretty crappy mall IMO
  • I agree, I think Crabtree would have been a better location. Apple has stores at both locations, so it makes sense to chose on of the two, but Crabtree definitely has more traffic. I can only assume that they are hoping to serve both the triangle and burlington/greensboro buy putting it at Southpoint.
  • We need one in Victoria Gardens, Rancho Cucamonga!
  • Wow I was just gonna say Victoria Gardens needs one. 
  • Destiny USA :D
  • Go Orange!
  • Nice, we have one in Culver City, CA, now Cerritos!
  • Maryland!!!
  • Looking forward to the Chandler, AZ location. The Scottsdale one is nice but a bit far.
  • Was hoping they would build one on the west side of Phoenix, but Chandler could use one too. Hoping its not just a kiosk.
  • Damn it, wish I was getting one near me. I need to move!!!
  • No love for UK? :(
  • Can't wait till the day that MS open a store in the UK, local to me.
  • Indeed. I live in London and one would expect the first store to open there...
  • Saw one in Australia, in the middle of nowhere! Way to go Microsoft.
  • Lies, no stores outside of north America
  • We need one in Ann Arbor, MI
  • I was thinking the same thing!
  • We have one in Bridgewater Commons I keep hoping for the Rockaway Mall so it is easy to go after work or during lunchtime, they keep saying it could happen
  • I don't know why, but when it read Tulsa, Oklahoma I remembered Chandler from Friends the TV show...
  • Hahaha
  • Still waiting for one in Rochester, NY. Would love to see it directly across from the Apple store
  • I hope there will be a bigger que at the Microsoft store for the Surface 3 instead of the criPad Air 2 at the Crapple store.
  • Does anyone know of the stores turn any profit?
  • Does it matter? Are you a share holder?
  • It matters to me because I like the services and products they have at the stores. I hope they are ultimately successful (profitable)... I want MS to do well in that space. I especially hope they continue developing Surface and Windows Phones and selling them in the stores. I realize the stores are not necessary for the devices, but they for a consumer based image of the company and the product they offer.
  • Still no store in Nashville - much sadness
  • Yelawolf
  • PUT ONE IN PHILADELPHIA!
  • We need one at Eastview Mall near Rochester, NY. Upscale mall with Apple Store needs Microsoft Store.
  • Great news, i wish they open one store in my country
  • Same here, no love for Latin America which actually is in almost every country with Windows Phone at the 2nd place of mobile OSs. FUCK MSFT AND THEIR US EXCLUSIVE LOVE. I'm done.
  • Arrgghh no Nashville
  • This. Green Hills, Cool Springs, and Opry Mills would all 3 be good locations. The first 2 have apple stores, and the third gets a ton of tourist traffic.
  • Central California please~
  • Bovine county? You really think microsoft wants the smell in their store?
  • Quite surprised that Eaton Centre didn't already have one yet.
  • They have a kiosk now...
  • Need more in southern California.
  • Lol
  • That's 3 Microsoft stores in Houston now. Woot!
  • Yes. Go Baybrook!
  • none in NJ again! great.. FU MS!
  • ??? There are several in NJ. North, Central, and South. Three for a relatively small state.
  • Charlotte, NC....about time....
  • Lakeside Mall location is opening across from the Apple Store. Going to be funny watching the looks from the iZombies.
  • I cannot wait for the Surface 3 and criPad Air 2 launch. I hope there will be no people at the Crapple store...
  • Is the pic in the article representative of what MS stores look like? Cos it's painfully not cool looking.
  • No, the pic is of a kiosk version, which are called specialty stores.
  • If anything Toronto Eaton Centre is a good idea, a very good idea. The mall is the vicinity of many of the city's tourist attractions (heck, the mall itself could be an attraction for some). I had a friend from Dubai visit and he was in awe of the Microsoft Store at Square One. He even bought for himself a Surface Pro 3!
  • There should be one in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
  • There should be one at least in every European capital but Microsoft is too dumb and prefers to open stores in some God forsaken nowhere in the US instead.
  • Yes, and MS is selling more outside the US.
  • ...just in case, lol.
  • Friendswood in baybrook mall is closer than driving to downtown Houston for me
  • I'll be there too
  • I have one 40 minutes away but I want one closer. I'm greedy.
  • I live in Canoga park!! Yes! I also read on this site that the one going up is directly across from an apple store! That store is CONSTANTLY packed to capacity. Hopefully it'll upset em a bit!
  • Wow, still no Microsoft store in Montreal or the Province of Quebec as a whole... What a shame!
  • That's what the separatists get lol. Jk. Just put one in Ottawa already!
  • Toronto!!!
  • Another one in Arizona! Awesome! I was sick of going to fucking Scottsdale every time I wanted to grope some new eye candy.... surface pro 3... mmmm
  • YES TULSA YESSSSS *immediately applies*
  • YES, they are finaly upgrading Tulsa's kiosk to a full blown store! Yay!
  • Ottawa, Canada
  • Yay NC! Hope southpoint is a full retail and not a kiosk
  • Too many in California :P
  • TOPANGA!!!! I was getting tired of going all the way to Glendale for just a small kiosk. Not only that but it's way closer. Thank you Microsoft!
  • You should go to the one in century city, its HUGE and the managers are incredible.
  • lets apply in topanga.  i heard employees gets good discounts.
  • MS should Come and open a retail store in Nigeria. There isn't even 1
  • Same here.... In France ;)
  • At last the event has took place
  • Good news
  • Why would they open one in the Chinook center in Calgary before Ottawa? Bigger city higher average income tones of traveling govt and govt related contractors would make the SP3 a big hit I would think.
    Oh well maybe in the next round.
  • Uhhh, Calgary is bigger than Ottawa and there's waaaay more disposable income and big business money here. Plus, Chinook is the premiere mall in town, and the store is going in right next to the Nordstrom's that is opening up shortly as well. Should be a great location!
  • Yeah, your statements are bit off. The median income in Ottawa is 93 440, Calgary is 93 410 and the population of Calgary Metropolitan Area is 1 214 839 and the National Capital Region is  1 236 324 (StatsCan). Sounds like the two are essentially the same. Calgary has tonnes of corporate offices (2nd most in Canada) and Chinook is one of the top three malls for sales in Canada.
  • Simple Alberta oil money ;)
  • Calgary is bigger (per 2014 metro pop estimates) and richer than Ottawa but ms opened its store in Edmonton before Calgary or of course Ottawa. Chinook Centre is on par with Yorkdale and has no match in Ottawa.
  • I visit the store in Metrotown in Burnaby all the time. My daughter loves the big dance screen. The staff are great there. When I got my 1520 they helped me swap my sim online even though they don't sell the phone. Love that store.
  • I feel that NYC should have a store, not only a kiosk
  • Be carful what you ask for,t he one by me that opened by me here in Washington state in Lynnwood was a damn kiosk in the middle of the mall sorely disappointing.
  • The one by me is a kiosk. But its listed so a store! Finally!
  • Visit Redmond or Seattle/Bellview. They have some great stores. (And a specialty store in Pacific Place FYI)
  • Is there any way to tell if they will be a kiosk or an actual store? I went to the opening of the Alpharetta, GA store and was a little bummed that it was just a kiosk.
  • Another in Louisiana! Sweet is the Metairie store going to be a kiosk or a full? The Baton Rouge one is still just a kiosk though the manager said they have their eye on an open spot on the boulevard mall @ mall of LA
  • Ahhh come on, I know I live in a small city, but can El Paso TX get some freaking love. I hate seeing an Apple store but no Microsoft Store.
  • El Paso is not really "small".
  • Very happy to see Syracuse on the list. I can't wait!!
  • Hey what about the middle east,like maybe Jordan? C'mon we don't have a war going on(well at least for now) and its the best place here, well after Dubai and these people who have OIL which we don't have BTW,but we are nice people!OH PLZ PLZ PLZ PLZ!!!!
  • For you, they should open one.
  • Aww that's sweet :)
  • How about west palm beach, Florida or palm beach. Come on.
  • Yay! Finally a store within a decent drive
  • India please. Is there Ms store in India?
  • We've got two in Salt Lake. I get my Microsoft fix any time I want!
  • Please come to Europe
  • I second this.
  • We need one in Dayton,Ohio at the Greene
  • Nokia Lumia 930 now available in the Philippines! https://twitter.com/NokiaPilipinas/status/492515885463404544
  • Yes...i even applied for a job. Fingers crossed
  • None in Wisconsin again
  • Yay! A real store in southpark!
  • Central fl needs another store.
  • Lol, I think Texas has more stores than Canada
  • Temecula, please!
  • http://www.gadgetlooks.blogspot.in/2014/02/heres-right-way-to-rescue-soa...
  • What about India
  • how do you apply for ms store?
  • NorthPark Center in Big D! Can't wait! That's where I'm going to buy my Surface Pro 3!
  • Dallas! I hope it's a real store and not a kiosk like the one in Frisco.
  • It will be a full line store and is said to be the biggest one in Texas. i've seen the spot and it looks to be as big as the new large Apple store there if not bigger. Which is good because if you're going to have the store near the Apple store it might as well compete in size since that store supposedly on of the busiest and highest revunue Apple store in America.  
  • Please!! We wanna a Microsoft store here in Mexico!!!
  • I live right by the streets at southpoint! Can't wait for Aug 21st, if I get a great deal on the dell V8P or vivotab note, I might be convinced to try one out.
  • But...Italy??
  • Come on guys at least open 2 in Australia one in Melbourne (Chadstone makes sense) and in Sydney.
  • Please micro soft open a Microsoft store here in Durban south Africa
  • 13 More Microsoft Stores in US & CANADA.  And none in India yet. Microsoft !! Show some to love to India too , afterall its the 3rd Largest Tech Market .
  • Yeah Calgary!!!
  • Comming Kerala
  • Canoga Park is close to me so I'll go check out their store when they have their grand opening.
  • None in the 626 yet
  • Dangit!! Still have to travel 20 minutes to get to my Microsoft store. Sooooooo far away...
  • Such a huge company and has stores only in the US (and Canada, Sherlock, ok). On the other hand, Apple has stores even here in Greece, so we shouldn't wonder for some bad facts about MS. 
  • Go 'Cuse!
  • Nothing for Montreal....
  • Nothing for Montreal and Toronto already has 2...yeah because the article is a bit misleading the Toronto Eaton center store is not upcoming it's already there
  • I know! This is a real bummer esti!
  • Putting it down for my WP users out here in Canoga Park!!! Woot woot!!! Can't wait to stroll through the Microsoft Store, right across from those Apple pickers, its gonna be so damn great!!
  • What about Europe?
  • In india they do planning for store
  • SHAME ON YOU MICROSOFT!! why there is no stores outside north america?? we are costumers too you know?? time to wake up!!
  • Your costumes are no where near as good as the ones in North America.
  • hope some moderator read your post... you wish you have costumes like mine and most people around the world. thats because people like you that americans are hated!!! you think you are the world and the rest just doesn't exist!! grow up!!!
     
  • Really still no store in NYC. All they have is a kiosk in the Time Warner Center. They had that great store in Times Square that they closed, and never opened anything else.
  • Metairie, Louiaiana is located in the bordering Parish to New Orleans and I can't wait to visit this store.  There is also an Apple store located in the exact same shopping center, but I REFUSE to even step foot in that place.  I will, however most definitely be visiting the Microsoft Store frequently!!!
  • In India??????
  • Upcoming... Hope that these stores will open.
  • The kiosk is overdue for an upgrade here in Tampa.
  • Bring one to Wichita or Kansas City! Eh, Tulsa isn't too far away, though. xD
  • Glad to see one within a couple of hours now in Tulsa OK how about North West Arkansas where WalMart and a bunch of other fairly large corps are headquartered
  • Damn it. Toronto is going to have 2 stores and Montreal gets nothing :(
  • What about Montreal?
  • No Montréal no new Brunswick no nova scotia. I would need to drive 22hrs to the neareast Canadian Microsoft store.
  • Nothing in Montreal. Shame.
  • If Microsoft wants to stablish the first Store in Iran I'm ready to be the first to do so (Facilities and certifications are ready).
  • I thought they had a store at the Eaton Centre already...hmm...
  • Yes!!! Toronto needs a big store at the Eaton Centre! This will be amazing! I'm totally looking forward to it!
  • North Park in Dallas is just as far as the one in Frisco, TX for me, but at least I have two options now!
  • Toronto and Calgary already. Have MS stores... The closest MS store to me is literally a 22hr drive! Without crossing the border to the U.S.
  • Hope they get visitors.
    Seen images with stores next to Applestores, Apples are full, ms store is empty.
  • No love for Wisconsin.  Sure wish they would open one in Madison, it is a college down after all so they could tap into that market.  Plus we have a lot of health care and tech related companies.   Oh well, maybe we'll make the next wave.  Fingers crossed!
  • Can Hampton Roads, Virginia get a MS store, please?
  • What about Montreal Canada? There's a big market for Microsoft here.
  • Woot Woot, Calgary!!! :D
  • Nothing in Poland..and Europe.. dam MS still selling in US and India... after new CEO they will focus on India... Now we must wait for CEO from Europe? Absurd!
