Windows Stores Only At Best Buy Open in 24 new stores in Chicago

Just in time for back to school, we’re thrilled to announce the opening of Windows Store only at Best Buy in 24 new Chicago area Best Buy locations. Building off the strategic partnership Microsoft and Best Buy entered into last year, these 24 new stores within Best Buy will be the premier destination for Microsoft products in the Chicago-area.

Last year, we opened 13 Windows Stores at Best Buy in Chicago. Today, the addition of these 24 new stores gives Chicagoans 37 Windows Stores at Best Buy, meaning there’s one near you no matter where you are. With the introduction of the Windows Store only at Best Buy at these new locations, Chicago consumers will have more places than ever to see, try, compare and purchase a range of products and accessories. These comprehensive store-within-a-store experiences range in size from 1,500 square feet to 2,200 square feet. The stores will feature a dedicated Surface area where people can check out the new the new Surface Pro 3. On central showcase tables, shoppers can get hands-on experience with the latest PCs, laptops, 2-in-1’s and more. The back wall will feature software and accessories, including Windows 8.1, Microsoft Office, Microsoft gift cards and much more. In addition, they will be provided expert advice from Windows-trained Best Buy Blue Shirt associates.

Our goal is to treat Chicago shoppers to a first class shopping experience, so they walk out of the store with the best device for their lifestyle. We’re excited to offer Chicagoans access to a retail destination that combines a great selection, the latest technology, the best service and the lowest prices.

We’re looking forward to getting to know the Chicago community better and meeting all the student shoppers prior to school starting in September!
