Microsoft Canada’s newest retail store comes to Calgary

Microsoft Corp. is bringing its fifth retail store in Canada to Calgary Aug. 14, and another location in the Greater Toronto Area is expected to follow soon.

Today, Microsoft Canada has full retail stores in Toronto, Burnaby, BC, Edmonton and Mississauga, Ont. There are also mall kiosks in Edmonton, Vancouver and Toronto.

The Calgary location opens Thursday at the Chinook Centre and, according to Microsoft’s web site, it will be opening a location soon at Toronto’s Eaton’s Centre to complement its location at Toronto’s Yorkdale Mall.

The Microsoft store in Calgary is located on the North end of the Main Leve of the Chinook Centrel, next to Nordstrom’s. Microsoft will hold the grand opening ceremonies Thursday at 10:30am, and officially open the doors at 11:00am. Free tickets will be distributed for a celebratory concert featuring the band Perry, known for their country hit If I Die Young.

No opening date (or band) has been announced for the second Toronto location, but the store will be located on Level 1, across from Express.
