Microsoft’s pop-up stores to open Oct. 26

Microsoft plans to open its 32 holiday pop-up stores on Oct. 26, the day that Windows 8 officially launches to the public.

Microsoft had announced last month the locations for these temporary stores but had not specified when they would open.

Now, Microsoft’s official stores website displays banners trumpeting an Oct. 26 opening date when users conduct a search for specific holiday store locations:

The website announcements were first reported by ZDNet, which credits a sharp-eyed reader for noticing.

The temporary stores are intended as a way for Microsoft to directly reach consumers with its Windows 8 offerings, including the Surface tablets — Microsoft’s first foray into its own branded computing devices.

None of the pop-up stores will be in Washington state, which has two permanent Microsoft Store locations — in University Village and Bellevue Square.
