Microsoft Store to open in Metropolis at Metrotown with Kelly Clarkson concert

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Microsoft is just about ready to open its first retail store in B.C. And the tech giant has enlisted an American pop star to help launch its version of the Apple Store in Burnaby.

      On Thursday (November 7) at 11 a.m., the Microsoft Store in Metropolis at Metrotown will welcome its first customers. But Kelly Clarkson fans (we know you exist) will want to get in line a bit earlier—some time after 10 p.m. on Wednesday.

      That's because free tickets to the "Since U Been Gone" singer's exclusive concert, which will begin at 7 p.m. Friday in Swangard Stadium, will be handed out to the first 2,100 people in line. (The first 100 will each get a ticket to a meet and greet with Clarkson too.)

      The new Microsoft Store is located on the ground level, near the grand court. Oakridge Centre already has a Microsoft specialty store, which is smaller than a retail store.

      It would be appropriate for the window of the store to occasional turn an opaque blue and lock up for no reason, for hours

      Does windows still exist? Apple is the future everyone. Accept it.

      To Murray_1337: I don't see any Apple products in the huge Datacenters where I work but I do see Microsoft alive and well in them. Apple is only for consumers as they do not have enough power for real world applications. So if Apple is the future, then I'd be pretty worried about all the industries crumbling because their servers can't handle the load.
