Report: Microsoft may open Manhattan store

BY Dan Berthiaume

Redmond, Wash. – Microsoft Corp. is reportedly negotiating to open a new store on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan. According to the New York Daily News, the site is only a few blocks from Apple’s large “glass cube” store in New York.

The 8,700-sq.-ft., two-story building was previously occupied by luxury specialty retailer Fendi, which relocated its store to a Madison Avenue site in 2013. Commercial brokerage firm Cushman & Wakefield is marketing the space and Asian real estate firm King Fook is the landlord. Microsoft operated a pop-up shop in Times Square in 2012 but does not currently have a retail store in New York City. Microsoft did not comment on the report.

The storefront opened on July 29, and features products for men, women and children. The new location is situated among retailers The Kooples, Sandro, American Vintage, Petit Bateau, Loft, Gap, Hermes, MAC, Zadig & Voltaire and Bang & Olufsen.
