Microsoft to Open Retail Stores a la Apple

Feb 13 2009 - 9:55am


PC fans rejoice: Microsoft announced yesterday that they're going to open their own line of retail stores [1] soon.

Microsoft briefly opened a store in San Francisco that closed in 2001, but this new effort will start with a few small stores. It makes sense to have a brick-and-mortar place to go for your products — it certainly worked for Apple, their stores being a place to go for fun browsing and of course, a reliable place to get your tech repaired [2], which would only be a help to the PC-devoted many.

What do you think? Are you psyched that Microsoft will have its own physical stores?
