Microsoft opened up four new physical retail store locations in the last few days, with two of them in New York on Friday, and the other two in New Hampshire and Delaware on Saturday.
The retail stores will show off the Redmond-based company's hardware and software offerings running on their Windows platform. These new stores add to Microsoft's retail store tally, pushing them up to having 45 retail stores open.
There were cheering crowds at the Microsoft store openings at all four locations, where the company gave out free prizes including a Samsung Series 9 notebook, Xbox 360 console and other goodies. Microsoft are looking to open up stores in Puerto Rico and Canada in 2013.
