Apart from this, they will also be able to troubleshoot, repair and get full support for all the Microsoft products, smartphones, and different Windows products.

The company has claimed that this store will not be just a retail store like others. Apart from selling products, the company will also organize different workshops, community events, training sessions, etc. It will support technology, science, mathematics and engineering education. Even though the company hasn’t given the exact opening date, but people close to this matter claim it to open during Christmas rush.

Jonathan Adashek, General Manager, Communication Strategy, Microsoft Stores, states that the management was planning to open a store in Sydney for a very long time, but couldn’t find the perfect space. It will look forward to opening these flagship stores in other parts of the world in the near future.
