Microsoft is opening 30 new holiday stores throughout the country and one will be in our own backyard. North Hills and West View residents will see a Microsoft store open at Ross Park Mall this fall reports the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. The mall is already home to an Apple store, Microsoft's competitor.
The new store will carry the Redmond, WA-based company's line of products. And, according to PCMag.com, the stores are part of Microsoft's plan to meet demand for the new Windows 8-enabled devices.
