SEATTLE — Microsoft united tweens and Gen Xers at Bellevue Square on Thursday, first giving away free Miley Cyrus concert tickets at its grand opening, then throwing a surprise free concert at night with Dave Matthews.
Three doors down, the Apple store, maybe for the first time, felt just a little stodgy with its cutouts of the Beatles in the window.
The new Microsoft store is the first retail store the company has opened on its home turf and represents a bid to make consumers fall in love with its brand and software.
Considering the company only has 7 stores nationwide, it’s interesting that they chose Bellevue for their new store.
I am excited to visit just to see what it has to offer.
