Microsoft to open new retail stores in Burlington, Oklahoma, and Jacksonville

What’s better than a new Microsoft Store opening up? Nothing in our minds!

Microsoft just posted a bulletin on their site noting that a new retail store would be opening up at some point in the near future at the Burlington Mall in Massachusetts. Our friends over at Neowin claim the store will be opening September 19th, but we cannot find a source to confirm or deny that fact.

The company has also made a quick Facebook announcement that it plans on bringing retail stores to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and Jacksonville, Florida.

As of now, we have nothing more to report as Microsoft’s message is as simple as follows:

“Look out, Burlington. We're headed to Burlington Mall soon. Get ready to experience the Microsoft Store near you. Although we can't reveal too much now, we can promise a lot of fun – and dancing – during our Grand Opening.”

We will make sure to keep you up to date on the latest information.

Anyone in the Burlington, Massachusetts area excited?

Was in Burlington Mall last weekend and saw their usual walls around their future store and its about the same size as all other Microsoft Stores.

It would be nice if Montreal can get a Microsoft store. It would serve as my new hangout!

Psyched! Was just thinking yesterday how we are missing a Microsoft store in my area. I don't have time to go into Boston that often, so this is ideal.

Nelman says:

Well, there is a Microsoft store at the Natick Collection too.

ladydias says:

Why not visit the store in Orlando if you're coming from further south in Florida?

I agree with that, but it does make sense he could go to the one in Orlando.  I've considered making the drive myself.

When in Europe? at least Portugal. :(

ShaunKL says:

No Tulsa?  *sigh*

inteller says:

yep thats bullshit.

There isn't a big enough space available in Woodland Hills Mall for one that is empty. There is in Penn Square. Is the PS one does well I. Can see Simon kicking out another tenant to make room in WH.

inteller says:

well is the one in okc across from apple store cause that seems to be what ms is more interested in.

It's on the same hallway of the mall, but almost to the center of the mall. They cleared out a business just behind the pop-up store. Personally, I'd say it's a better location than the Apple store, which is some ways down that hallway of the mall, while you should be able to see the Microsoft store from the center, regardless of which hallway you're on.

mango.lover says:

Actually Tulsa is coming.

Bgrubb says:

That's what I'm waiting on since I don't think they'll come to Joplin lol

bdball says:

Wouldn't Oak Park Mall in Overland Park be closer for you?

dnasmyth says:

I just came home from Burlington Mall. The sign on store says grand opening September 19.

damo579 says:

sasukeluffy says:

remc86007 says:

Jagsfan28 says:

Finally Jacksonville!

big dooze says:

Yay for Oklahoma City!!!!!

NOO! I saw "Burlington Mall" and thought it was the one in Pennsilvania. RAAIG (lol)

xacious says:

Jacksonville rarely gets anything good. Finally this city has something besides apple stores and Abercrombie and Fitch....woohoo!

Ed Boland says:

w00t for Jacksonville!!
I hope they open it in Town Center.. Right across from the Apple store...

Rich Baker says:

Jacksonville store is rumored to be next to the Urban Outfitters in the Town Center... http://www.bizjournals.com/jacksonville/blog/morning-edition/2013/05/mic...

JagJunkkie says:

You're kidding! Thats blocks from me! :)

Bartdog says:

Yay, Jacksonville! Woofwoofwoof

garak0410 says:

Little Rock please!!! The Apple store was a hit and I know a Microsoft Store would be as well...

rsalinger says:

Wasn't that movie Paul Blart: Mall Cop filmed at the Burlington Mall? I've only been there once or twice, very nice location with lots of exposure to retail stores. I think it can succeed.

MoFest says:

Yay, Jacksonville!

920Walker says:

I'm 1 mile from the Burlington mall. Bought my +920 there. I hope it goes in directly across from the apple store. The MS store employees can use +1020s to record the flock of sheep's antics across the way. The customers at Build-a-Bear even know better than to make transactions at APL.

neo158 says:

This is nice and all but when are Microsoft Stores coming to the UK!!!?!

Josh Harman says:

A Microsoft Store inside a Burlington Coat Factory? Interesting.

hbhb1316 says:

Why Jacksonville? Why not Tampa? Interesting choice of location.

thirdday2002 says:

OKC and Jacksonville, but still no Nashville. :'(

When's Louisiana getting one? Texas has two... Louisiana needs at least one.

cam45fblax says:

Jacksonville? New York? Boston? Chicago? Why do these cities always come up!...reference anyone?

JohnStrk says:

Falling Skies last week!  Nice!!! :)

thirdday2002 says:

Yes! Falling Skies!

Quin 2013 says:

When are they going to open a store in San Francisco?!?! Gaaah!

sumothong01 says:

Nashville Please!!!!!

Ed Boland says:

They have one in Orlando... Tampa would be too close.

Hoekie says:

The Netherlands pleasssssse.

MVogelezang says:

Europe next? ;-) The Netherlands specific, we need a shop where we get the Windows experience since there is no employer in any store around here that can say something positive about MSFT. Only Apple/ Google; I hate those people...

JohnStrk says:

Great to see more stores opening and nice that Jacksonville is getting one.  Might have to make the 2 hour drive over from thuggahassee!

jonjohn04 says:

I'm so happy to have a store in Jacksonville!

SethGlenn says:

Woohoo!! OKC!!
