Microsoft Store Headed to Fifth Avenue (UPDATED)
Microsoft is bringing a retail store to one of Manhattan's most glamorous areas.
The new Microsoft Store will open at 677 Fifth Ave., between 53rd and 54th Streets, after five years of planning, the company confirmed to the Wall Street Journal. The location is a former Fendi retail store.
In keeping with Microsoft's tradition of locating its retail outlets close to those of Apple, the new location is just five blocks away from Apple's famed "cube" location at 757 Fifth Ave.
