Microsoft Specialty Store opens Friday in Pacific Place

Microsoft is opening one of its specialty stores — essentially kiosk-type retail spaces — in Pacific Place tomorrow with an appearance by Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate.

Tate is scheduled to greet fans and play games with customers using Kinect for Xbox starting at 12:30 p.m. (The line to meet Tate starts at 10 a.m.)

The specialty store, which will be located on level three of Pacific Place mall near the Nordstrom Skybridge, is one of more than 30 specialty stores that Microsoft has opened in the past year. These stores carry a smaller assortment of products — such as the Surface tablets, Windows Phone and Xbox — than the full-sized retail Microsoft Stores. (The specialty stores are also separate from the upcoming Windows Stores, which will be mini storesĀ  inside Best Buy locations.)
