Starting July 29, all Microsoft stores in the U.S., Puerto Rico, and Canada will celebrate the launch of Windows 10 with a series of in-store activities and events across more than 110 locations. Visit your local store to see what Windows 10 has to offer and receive advice directly from the experts.  You can also get all of the assistance and info you need to upgrade including a FREE upgrade assessment for your PC or tablet.

Throughout the day on the 29th, Microsoft store activities will include giveaways, refreshments and more. Starting July 29, a series of free Get to Know Windows 10 workshops will be kicking off.  Join us and get expert advice and everything you need to know about Windows 10 – click here for more details.  Select Microsoft stores will also be hosting afternoon receptions to recognize local community organizations and nonprofits that upgrade their community every day, in support of #UpgradeYourWorld.  This is just another way that Microsoft stores are dedicated to delivering outstanding choice, value and service to all of our customers.

We also want to give a special thanks to the people who helped shape Windows 10.  To celebrate, the first 50 Windows Insiders to visit each Microsoft store starting on July 29 will get an exclusive Windows Insiders t-shirt (first-come first-served), and in addition, we are offering a Windows Insider Exclusive Microsoft store offer, valid in-store only July 29- August 2.  Go to the Windows Insider Hub to learn more and download the offer.
