Microsoft opening a kiosk store in Bellevue?

It looks like Microsoft is planning to open one of its small “specialty” stores at an undisclosed location in Bellevue.

According to a job posting on the Microsoft Careers site, the company is looking for a store manager for a specialty store located in Bellevue.

Microsoft’s specialty stores are, essentially, kiosk-type stores located in malls. They arose out of the temporary holiday stores that Microsoft first opened last year.

Microsoft currently has about 31 specialty stores, mainly in the U.S. and Canada.

It also has about 34 larger, permanent retail stores.

Microsoft already has one of its larger, permanent stores in Bellevue. Its Bellevue Square store, which opened in 2010, was the first Microsoft Store in the Northwest. The company opened its Seattle retail store, in University Village, in October 2011.

A Microsoft spokeswoman said the company does not “have additional details to share” at this time on the job posting for the Bellevue specialty store.

That job listing was first noticed by the Neowin site.
