THE WOODLANDS, Texas—Microsoft will officially open its pop-up retail store at The Woodlands Mall this Friday, October 26. The Woodlands Mall is the only location in the Greater Houston area to have one of these ‘pop-up’ retail outlets. This new site enables the company to meet the expected demand for the new Microsoft-enabled devices for the holiday buying season, like their new Surface tablet which will be released the same day.
Across the country, the 32 ‘pop-up’ stores that will open simultaneously on October 26, more than doubles the number of Microsoft physical outlets. They will have trained staff demonstrate and sell the new Surface tablet and other Microsoft products, to maximize the customer’s capability.
Two of the personnel who will greet and demonstrate the Microsoft Surface tablet at The Woodlands Mall, are Mayra Gomez and Dalicia Jackson.
“We’ll have plenty of Surface tablets available,” said Jackson. “Microsoft’s retail partners will also have the product available at their locations.
The exact location of the Microsoft “pop-up” store at The Woodlands Mall is Center Court on the ground level, in front of Abercrombie & Fitch. Store hours will be Monday through Saturday, 10 am – 9 pm, and Sunday, noon – 6 pm.
