The following is a post by Jonathan Adashek, General Manager, Communications Strategy, Sales & Marketing Services Group, Microsoft.


Last month I posted about six new Microsoft retail store locations, and today I’m excited to announce that we will be adding five more stores by summer!

Our five new retail stores will soon be found in:

· Natick Mall, Natick, Massachusetts

· Ala Moana Center, Honolulu, Hawaii

· Pioneer Place, Portland, Oregon

· The Somerset Collection, Troy, Michigan

· Woodfield Mall, Schaumburg, Illinois

Our customers continue to tell us that they value our stores for connecting them to the best of Microsoft. This delights us to no end. From the newest touchscreen laptops, desktops, and tablets running Windows 8, to Windows Phones, to Xbox and Kinect consoles and accessories, to a wide array of first and third-party software titles, our goal is to introduce you to the best choice, value and service we have to offer.

In addition, our associates are here to make our customer experience as entertaining, educational, and easy as possible. So whether you are a tech enthusiast who wants to talk speeds and feeds, a mom getting her family ready to go back to school or a small business owner looking for the right set-up for a ten person office, our store associates will provide personalized information and service to suit you.

Further information on our grand opening celebrations in Natick, Honolulu, Portland, Troy and Schaumburg will arrive in the coming weeks. Please keep an eye out as we continue to open Microsoft retail stores near you – we can’t wait to welcome you into the Microsoft retail stores!
