Microsoft has announced plans to open more Microsoft retail outlets. According to the software giant, it will open 11 new retail stores in time for summer shopping. Microsoft has a few retail outlets around the country currently and has blamed its poor retail presence as a reason why some of its products, such as the Surface RT tablet, haven't sold well.
During the Christmas shopping season, Microsoft had pop-up store locations spread around the country. Microsoft announced some of those pop-up locations would turn into permanent retail stores. However, the software company didn't get specific on which of those pop up stores would become permanent.
Microsoft has offered a list of store locations. Locations are as follows:
Beachwood, OH: Beachwood Place Honolulu, HI: Ala Moana Center Miami, FL: Dadeland Mall Natick, MA: Natick Mall Portland, OR: Pioneer Place Salt Lake City, UT: City Creek Center* San Antonio, TX: The Shops at La Cantera San Francisco, CA: Westfield San Francisco Centre Schaumburg, IL: Woodfield Mall* St. Louis, MO: St. Louis Galleria Troy, MI: The Somerset Collection *
