Upcoming Microsoft Store in New York City gets a new look ahead of opening

This week, some changes were made to the look of the upcoming flagship Microsoft Store in New York City. The construction scaffolding facade was removed from the store location earlier this week, giving the storefront a new look ahead of its planned opening later this fall.

Based on the picture uploaded to Twitter by Gerardo Naranjo, it looks like Microsoft still wants to conceal the final look of the new store, which is located at 677 Fifth Avenue in Manhattan. While the construction scaffolding is now gone, there's now a cover that's been placed over the store with a version of the Microsoft logo. However, it does look like the location is only weeks away from opening to the public.

The new Microsoft Store, which was first announced over a year ago, will have several floors, including one that will have what the company has called an "experiential space" for customers to check out. Microsoft is currently running a contest in the US where the grand prize is a trip to attend the grand opening of the store.
