Sydney, Australia to have a real Microsoft Store
Microsoft to open a physical store in Sydney
Microsoft has announced that their first flagship retail store outside of North America will be opened in Australia, Sydney. The exact location of the store is the Pitt Street Mall at Westfield Sydney.
In the store, Microsoft will demonstrate key products and services like Surface, Windows Phone, Xbox One, Windows PCs, Microsoft Band and more. In addition to the ability to experience new products, all visitors can stop by a special Answer Desk and ask questions related to Microsoft software and hardware.
Microsoft currently has physical stores in a few countries – the US, Canada, and Puerto Rico. The United Kingdom (in London) and Australia (in Sydney) are believed to be among the first countries connected with the future expansion.
Apple has proved that real retail stores are still very popular among consumers and a natural extension to the online stores.
Microsoft has online stores in 189 countries.
