Microsoft Stores to Open Inside 600 Best Buy Locations

On their blog, Microsoft just announced that they'll be opening Windows Stores inside Best Buy. The retailer is becoming quite the hot spot for compartmentalized sales spaces with their Apple section, recently added Samsung Experience centers and now Microsoft. This is pretty big: 600 Best Buy stores in the US and Canada will get the MS treatment, with floor space between 1500 and 2,200 square feet. 1,200 new staff are due for hire, which averages to 2 new staff members at each store. This affects 500 US stores and 100 Canada Best Buy and Future Shop locations.

Microsoft has even created a video to help you envision the experience (not that you were having trouble imaging what it would look like, but MS is clearly stoked). Microsoft and Best Buy will have tables for XBOX, laptops, tablets and Windows Phone.

Best Buy already has a web page up for the new Windows Store: Best Buy Windows Store web page
