Microsoft Is Closing Down All Retail Stores

Microsoft is closing its retail doors.

The retail giant announced on Friday (June 26) that all of its stores will be closed down, shifting instead to online sales.

The decision comes at the same time as Apple was forced to re-close dozens of stores amid the ongoing global health crisis.

“Four store locations — in London, New York City, Sydney and at Microsoft’s Redmond, Washington campus — will be converted from retail stores to ‘experience centers,’ Microsoft said; the rest of the company’s 116 stores both at home and abroad will be shuttered,” The Wrap reports.

“Our sales have grown online as our product portfolio has evolved to largely digital offerings, and our talented team has proven success serving customers beyond any physical location. We are grateful to our Microsoft Store customers and we look forward to continuing to serve them online and with our retail sales team at Microsoft corporate locations,” Microsoft VP David Porter said.

This other retailer is permanently closing all retail stores amid the pandemic…
