Microsoft to Open a Retail Store Blocks Away from Apple's 5th Ave. Store in NY
Apple’s New York flagship retail store located on Fifth Ave. will soon be getting a competitive neighbor. Reports are claiming that Microsoft is currently in the talks to take over a retail space only a couple of blocks away from the glass cube. According to the New York Daily News, sources in the loop with Microsoft’s plans say the company is looking at a two-story store that is currently Fendi.
The two-story space comes in at 8,700 square-feet and is located at 677 5th Ave. If everything goes as planned, this store would mark Microsoft’s first permanent Manhattan retail store. The 2012 store in Times Square was only a temporary pop-up shop. Apple’s flagship store opened up in 2006 and has since been an iconic place to visit in Manhattan, especially for tourists. Microsoft followed Apple’s footsteps in opening up retail stores starting 2009 and currently has 102 stores with plans on opening 12 more in the following years.
