New flagship Microsoft Store opens tomorrow in New York City, just blocks from Apple's "cube"
Tomorrow, Microsoft opens its brand new retail store in New York City. Located on tony Fifth Avenue in a location once inhabited by Fendi, Microsoft will sell all of its latest devices including the Surface Pro 4 and the Surface Book laptop/tablet. Those are the first two products you see as you enter the store. Additionally, the Microsoft Lumia 950 and Microsoft Lumia 950 XL are also expected to be on display at the store, with consumers being allowed to go hands-on with the newest high-end Lumia handsets.

The address of the store is 677 Fifth Avenue, and the property offers 22,269 square feet. But what makes the store so interesting is its proximity to the Apple Store known as "The Cube." The two stores are just five blocks apart meaning that tech fans can quickly check out the latest devices from one of the retail locations, and then make the short walk to the other store.

Inside the new Microsoft Store you can find screens on both sides pushing Microsoft products, and it is the only Microsoft Store with the huge Surface Hub touchscreen display for businesses, in stock. The new Microsoft Store on Fifth Avenue is five stories, although retail takes up just two of them. There is space devoted to Dell's upcoming business products and tech support is also on a higher floor. You can get an idea of what it looks like inside by clicking on the slideshow, below.
