Microsoft has a flagship store in North America, but it seems the company is aiming to enter other international markets as well.
The company announced it will open up its first flagship store outside North America, starting with Sydney Australia.
The flagship store will be located at Westfield Sydney on Pitt Street Mall, and will allow customers to experience Microsoft’s products and services, including Windows PCs, Surface devices, Windows Phones, Xbox One, Office and more in an innovative and vibrant setting.
Furthermore, the store will also have an Answer Desk for questions, troubleshooting, repairs and support related to all Microsoft’s products and services.
“We are also committed to being part of the fabric of the local community in which we’ll operate. We will regularly donate volunteer hours, host community events, offer training workshops, support science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education and build deeper relationships with our customers, one person at a time. The space will be as much a place for engaging experiences as it is a retail store. It will complement our excellent retail partner network and be a natural extension of our existing online store,” Pip Marlow, Managing Director, Microsoft Australia said.
There’s no word about the exact opening date for the store but we’ll update you as soon as it opens its doors to Australian customers.
Microsoft currently operates more than 110 physical stores in the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico, 17 store-in-store locations in China, and online stores in 189 countries.
