Have you heard of the famous Apple flagship store at Fifth Avenue in New York? It will soon be joined by its "bestest buddy ever!" Microsoft officially confirmed plans to build their own flagship Microsoft retail store at Fifth Avenue in New York as well. Here's a quote from Microsoft's press statement,

Today, I am pleased to confirm we have signed a lease to open a flagship store at 677 Fifth Avenue in New York City. As our first flagship store, it will serve as the centerpiece of our Microsoft Stores experience. This is a goal we’ve had since day one – we were only waiting for the right location. And now we have it. Our Fifth Avenue location will be much more than just a Microsoft Store. In addition to retail, there will be experiential space for Microsoft as a company to further engage with our customers and partners in new and innovative ways. This is an important milestone for Microsoft overall, our Stores team and millions of our current customers, as well as the millions to come. We could not be more excited to join one of the most visited streets in America.

They didn't specify when it will be open, but it looks like they will begin the process very soon. What do you think of this move from masters of Windows?
