Microsoft to open its holiday pop-up retail stores on October 26

Microsoft will, indeed, open its 30-plus holiday pop-up brick-and-mortar stores on October 26, the day that Windows 8 and the Surface RT tablets go on sale.


It seems obvious this would be the case, doesn't it? But back in early September, when Microsoft announced the list of pop-up stores it will be opening "this fall,," officials refused to confirm they'd be open by October 26.

Luckily, eagle-eyed Microsoft watcher @steveymacjr spotted a mention of the New York store opening on October 26 on Microsoft's own Microsoft Stores web site.

I checked some of the 31 other pop-up store locations in the U.S. and Canada and they also list October 26 as their opening dates.

Microsoft Stores sell Windows PCs, Windows Phones, Microsoft and third-party software, games, peripherals and more. Microsoft also is going to sell its recently announced Surface PC/tablets through its Microsoft Stores in the U.S. and through select online Microsoft stores, as well.
