Microsoft opens new flagship store in New York City
Earlier today, Microsoft opened the company's first flagship location, which is located at 677 Fifth Avenue in Manhattan and features a five-story glass storefront. The Redmond giant began opening retail stores back in 2009 and now they have finally found the right time and place, company executives reveal. According to Microsoft's Kelly Soligon, "One of our goals, since we started the stores in 2009, was to have a real marquee location where we could bring an expanded retail presence."
The new store in New York City is the largest Microsoft retail location to date, offering no less than 22,269 square feet and also the first Microsoft Store to extend two stories. This allows Microsoft to showcase an impressive range of products, including the Lumia, Band, and Surface devices, Signature Edition PCs, Xbox One, as well as accessories and more. The store is also the only location that shows the Surface Hub.
The store also offers the largest Answer Desk of all Microsoft Stores, while the team members speak no less than 19 languages, including Spanish, Hindi, Mandarin, Arabic, and Russian. More details can be found in the press release below.
