Checkout: The Windows Store on Best Buy
Microsoft is launching their Windows Store across 600 locations in the US and Canada market.
This new expansion is in collaboration with Best Buy. Microsoft would establish mini stores inside Best Buy locations around North America.
The first of these stores would open later this month. And the complete rollout should be done by September just in time for the start of the holiday season in the US market.
Microsoft is also going to train Best Buy staff so that they can cater properly to questions posed by potential customers.
Best Buy of course has similar deal with Apple to promote and sell their products through their stores but the deal with Microsoft is much larger. There have also been reports that Samsung too is in talks with the company.
