First Windows Store at Best Buy to open August 7th

In June, Microsoft announced that it was expanding its Microsoft Store concept to include 1,500 to 2,200 square foot “stores” inside Best Buys, promising to be “will be the premier destination for consumers to see, try, compare and purchase a range of products and accessories, including Windows-based tablets and PCs, Windows Phones, Microsoft Office, Xbox, and more”. Now today, in a post on the Windows Blog, Microsoft and Best Buy are announcing the opening of the first of those stores, on August 7th in West Los Angeles.

The promotion will chances to meet LA Galaxy MLS stars (now if they can pull off a Clint Dempsey appearance at a Seattle Best Buy, that would be impressive!). No word as yet on how soon or where other Windows Stores will begin popping up inside Best Buys, but expect them to be in full operation by this holiday season.
