Microsoft says to open a new flagship store on 5th Avenue in Manhattan, right in the near of the 5th Avenue Apple Store.
The Microsoft store chain continues to grow. Microsoft has about a 100 retail locations by now. Apple has over 250 stores in the United States alone. Microsoft has now confirmed to open a new flagship store in a prime location. The new Microsoft Store will be at 677 5th Avenue in New York. The flagship Apple Store is just a couple blocks away.

The Microsoft Store will replace a Fendi store that is currently at that address. Microsoft revealed to the Wall Street Journal that they have been working on the Fifth Avenue store for five years.
According to the report, Microsoft plans 10 more stores in time for the Holiday season.
Personally I am not excited about Microsoft Stores. The only time I check them out is on Black Friday. The online Microsoft Store has each year some fantastic Xbox and laptop deals. See last year's Microsoft Store Black Friday deals.
