Microsoft will Close All of its Retail Stores Permanently

Today Microsoft announced that they will permanently close all their retail stores.

The physical stores that are based across the world will be shut and the staff who worked in them will instead work either remotely or in Microsoft’s corporate facilities, it said.

But Microsoft will keep four of its stores in London, New York, Sydney and its home base Redmond near Seattle. But they will be ‘reimagined ‘, the company said in a statement.

Instead of keeping stores open, it will move towards digital storefronts such as its websites, and those store locations that stay open will change.

The new decision of the company came as the company’s sales are increasingly moving online, across its various businesses, which includes the Xbox as well as Windows and hardware, it said.
