Microsoft announces Huntington & White Plains Stores in New York opening September 28th

WP Central

Good news to our New York readers as you’ll be gaining access to two new Microsoft Stores at the end of September. We’ve known about these locations for awhile but now Microsoft has made it official...

  • Huntington Station (Walt Whitman Mall), NY
  • White Plans, NY

Both stores will be throwing their doors open on Friday, September 28th. The good news for those of you who can’t be there is we’ll be at the Huntington Station location for coverage of the event. As it so happens, yours truly lives not too far from the new location (Walt Whitman Mall is getting  major makeover as we speak), so we’re personally quite excited about that location coming around. Microsoft recently opened a Store in Boston, Massachusetts store with great success, so it is fitting to see New York get its due.

Now all that remains is a flagship store in New York City but at least they will have a “holiday store” coming later this fall.

And grand openings in Newark, DE and Salem, NH on September 29th! Philly gets an almost-local store.

White Plains and Long Island before NYC? That is baffling.

NYC real estate is expensive. We don't have a Walmart either. :)

Vallos says:

Too expensive for Microsoft?

Banstyle says:

It might not be worth it. What is there that I can't get at the Best Buy next door? :)

You get P.C.'s with a windows signature installation (No Bloatware) and you get people who actually know the things they are selling.

Nice! To bad I don't live there anymore. :( they should put one in Michigan

The "Holiday Store" plans to remain past the holidays, I've spoken to them during my interviews. ;)

I knew it was going to be in the walt wittman mall.  I think they would have better success if it were in Roosevelt Field but I get the whole "premium feel" concept.

Anyone knows the zipcode for these store locations? I live in NYC but I have a car and I'm hoping to drive to the closest one to me using my gps.

WPSteve says:

Wait for the Manhattan one?

I always wondered why Microsoft never had user experience stores like Sony and Apple. I have been selling W8 tablets/phones to my friends and relatives so they will really like being able to touch and play with the products before buying. 
Looks like they are setting up a great ecosystem to leverage Windows 8. I'm looking forward to going to the Huntington Station store.

How about a store in Lexington , KY? Apple has a store in Fayette mall; the University of Kentucky campus is just 10 minutes away. I do wonder what will be the nearest MS store for folks here in Lexington go see the surface when it comes out. Not near I believe which is sad. It would he great for consumers if MS could partner with Best Buy to at least display the devices...but I get it, they don't want to upset their partners. Blah
