Microsoft New York City flagship store to open October 26

Microsoft is opening its first New York City flagship brick-and-mortar Microsoft Store on October 26, and another in Sydney on November 12.

Microsoft plans to open the doors of its first flagship Microsoft Store in New York City on October 26.


The company also plans to open a flagship store in Sydney on November 12, according to a September 30 blog post. Microsoft officials confirmed

Microsoft officials confirmed last September that the company would be opening a full-size Microsoft Store on Fifth Avenue in the former Fendi New York City flagship space.

The new Manhattan store, located at 677 Fifth Avenue (near 53rd Street), which is just a few blocks from Apple's Fifth Avenue store, will open at noon, with opening ceremonies starting at 11:30 a.m.

The Microsoft Westfield Sydney on Pitt Street Mall store will be open on Thursday, Nov. 12 at noon AET.

The New York City store is opening a few weeks after Microsoft is expected to unveil its new line of Microsoft-branded Windows 10 devices, including new Surface Pros, two new premium Lumia Phones and an updated Microsoft Band fitness band. That big-bang hardware launch is happening in New York on October 6.
