Microsoft opening specialty store in Pacific Place

Microsoft will be opening a specialty store — one of its smaller, kiosk-type retail spaces — at Pacific Place on June 21.

The Pacific Place store was among the four specialty stores — the others are in California, Texas and Michigan — that Microsoft announced would be opening later this month and in June.

Microsoft’s specialty stores are mostly kiosk-type stores located in malls. They arose out of the temporary holiday stores that Microsoft first opened last year. The company currently has 31 specialty stores, with more scheduled to open soon.

It also has 34 larger, permanent retail stores, including the ones currently at Bellevue Square and at University Village in Seattle.

A specialty store is also reportedly in the works for somewhere in Bellevue. A Microsoft spokeswoman declined to comment on that report.
