Microsoft's Retail Opening Confirmed for Thursday


It's been confirmed; the first Microsoft Store will open this Thursday in Scottsdale, Arizona, and will coincide with the launch of Windows 7.

An ad in the Arizona Republic newspaper urges residents to "Be early" (stores opens at 10AM), as the first 1,000 visitors will receive gift bags and concert tickets. The grand opening will also feature live music with Ashley Tisdale performing in the evening. Hey, at least it's not Miley Cyrus.

"From computers and software to games, music, and phones, once you've found what you're looking for, the Microsoft Store offers services like personal training, technical support, ongoing performance tune-ups -- even extended protection plans to help you get the most out of your experience," Microsoft states in its ad.

Anyone in the area plan on attending?
