Remember Microsoft Stores? Well, they're closed forever now

Microsoft will permanently close almost all of its retail stores in the USA and around the world, leaving only four locations open.

The company says it will continue to operate its Microsoft Experience Centers in, London, Sydney, and at its Redmond, Washington, campus.

"It is a new day for how Microsoft Store team members will serve all customers", continues Porter. That includes primarily asset write-offs and impairments, the company said.

Others contended that the decision was rational and noted that the company had failed to compete with Apple's stores. But the physical stores failed to gain the momentum of rival Apple.

And on Sunday, Facebook's sixth-largest advertiser, Starbucks , also said it plans to stop all advertising on social media. Zuckerberg also said the company will not be changing its policies that allow lying in paid political advertisements.


Microsoft has more than 70 USA stores; seven in Canada; and one each in Puerto Rico, Australia, and England.

Microsoft's store locations have been closed since late March due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Microsoft will permanently shut down its high-street stores, taking a $450m (£364m) hit as it reverses an attempt to ape Apple's physical shops. Microsoft says these digital storefronts reach more than 1.2 billion people every month in 190 markets. The company will direct the retail team's personnel for online sales and support, and customers will continue to receive the service as before.

According to its website, Microsoft has 83 stores worldwide, including 72 stores in the USA, and several others overseas where it showcases and sells laptops and other hardware. The retail team has hosted over 14,000 online workshops and summer camps.

The bulk of Microsoft's retail store locations are in the United States, with nine in Canada, the U.K. and Australia. However, if you want the local Microsoft Store to be the winning choice for the new Xbox, then you will have to turn elsewhere.

Microsoft said the closures will "result in a pre-tax charge of approximately $450 million", which the company will record during the current quarter.

Because of this, the company will reimagine its offerings at certain flagship stores, transforming them into Experience Centers that will provide education and interactive product placements.
