It’s just been revealed that Microsoft is closing all of its stores as it’s undergoing a strategic change in its retail operations.
The company has retail stores worldwide, including Canada with locations in Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Ottawa, Montreal, and Quebec City.
Also included in the update was the news that former store employees will continue to serve customers from Microsoft corporate facilities and remotely providing sales, training, and support.
While the news of the stores closing is a surprise, there is a silver lining. Microsoft will be opening Microsoft Experience Centers in its London, New York City, Sydney, and Redmond campus locations.
“It is a new day for how Microsoft Store team members will serve all customers,” said Microsoft Corporate Vice President David Porter.
“We are energized about the opportunity to innovate in how we engage with all customers, maximize our talent for greatest impact, and most importantly help our valued customers achieve more.”
Microsoft isn’t the only company that is closing stores.
