Its time for a party in the U.S.A. Microsoft is opening its first retail store in Washington state in Bellevue on Thursday. To promote its opening, the store is throwing a free concert with singer and actress Miley Cyrus on Saturday.
The store opens at Bellevue Square at 10 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 18. The first 1,000 people on Thursday will get two premiere tickets. The store will then give away general admission tickets. The concert will be held in the Safeway parking lot across the street from Bellevue Square.
This will be the seventh retail store for Microsoft. The other stores are in Scottsdale, Ariz.; Mission Viejo, Calif.; Oak Brook, Ill.; San Diego, Calif.; Lone Tree, Colo.; and Bloomington, Minn.
