Microsoft Store in BeachwoodBack in October, Microsoft opened a store (a kiosk on steroids, really) in Beachwood Place.  At the time it was identified as a temporary seasonal store.

Well, no longer (thanks to Jim Evans who pointed this out on Facebook).  Microsoft announced back on December 26th plans for opening full retail stores in six locations.

And you guessed it (or you figured it out from the title).  One of them is at Beachwood Place, replacing the “pop-up” store currently in place.

Later this month Microsoft is scheduled to be releasing their follow up to the Surface RT tablet.  The new tablet, named the Surface Pro, will feature a full Windows 8 Pro capacity.
