High streets tingle with excitement at thought of Microsoft stores entering them
It’s been mooted for a while now, but it looks as though Microsoft shops could soon be coming to UK high streets, with all of the Gatesian goodies available under one roof for you, the rabid consumer.
They already have some in the USA and Canada, and the The Verge claims that the first UK one will be open during March 2013 – with a dedicated online store opening for business later this summer.
Microsoft's chief operating officer, Kevin Turner, said last year that they’re aiming to open 75 new retail stores over the next two years, in addition to the 19 stores that they already have. You’re all excited, right? RIGHT??
