You may or may not have known this, but Microsoft's Fiscal Year runs July 1 - June 30. Most of our business customers have known this for years and all of our account managers are busy trying to close out as many deals as possible. I just learned that our Microsoft Stores adhere to the same fiscal year. What does that mean for consumers? Tons of in-store promotions.
I live in Chicago so I only have insight into some the of deals we have going at our Oak Brook, IL store:
