Microsoft to open retail stores in UK
Microsoft is understood to be plotting retail stores for the UK. It has already identified around 30 store openings in the US in 2009.
The UK stores are unlikely to open until next year, but will aim to emulate the format of Apple stores with its own take on Apple’s ‘Genius Bars’.
Microsoft’s stores will have PCs, laptops, Xboxes and mobile phones that demonstrate its software – particularly those with Windows on board.
