Microsoft is putting up some 30+ pop up stores for the holidays, but no one knew when they were going to be opening. However, we now know that the stores will be opening just in time for the Microsoft Surface tablet launch. This means that these stores will be opening on October 26 and users should be able to go hands on with the new tablets.

As it stands right now, Microsoft has some 24 stores open worldwide. Last year, Microsoft stated they were planning on opening 75 additional stores over the next two to three years. Microsoft has reported that they will have an additional 44 retail locations in place by the end of fiscal year 2013, which means at the end of June 2013.

 

Microsoft is holding the Windows 8 launch party on October 25. Microsoft is bringing these pop-up holiday stores to cities around the country, including Atlanta, Miami, San Francisco, and Vancouver. It's not clear if Microsoft will be bringing pop-up holiday stores to other countries.
