Microsoft announced the expansion of its retail strategy early this year with the rebranding of Nokia’s former stores into Microsoft authorized resellers. After opening stores in India and Toronto, Microsoft now sets its sights on the Phillppines for its next appearance.
On Microsoft Lumia Philippines Facebook page, the company posted the following :
The first ever Microsoft Authorized Reseller will be opening it’s doors this Saturday, June 27, 2015 at SM North Esda, Cyberzone. Don’t miss this exciting event where you can get freebies and avail of limited promos. See you all there!
An image sent in from a reader also shows that there are plans on opening another Microsoft Store in July located in the SM Megamall.
This marks the continuation of Microsoft’s continued push into consumer hardware with products like the Surface, Xbox and Lumia being sold there in a controlled setting.
