With 75 stores already plus the partnership with Best Buy to create “Windows Store” inside 600 Best Buy locations, the company is planning to have it reach beyond the North America. Microsoft’s chief operating officer Kevin Turner today at Microsoft’s Worldwide Partner Conference revealed that the company is planning to have 101 stores in total “this time by next year” plus also planning to open retail stores in China, The Verge reports. The move was described as “very very strategic” by Turner.

“The Windows Store offers a large-scale, hands-on customer experience that will show customers how Windows and Microsoft devices and services can make it easier for them to work and play,” said Tami Reller, chief marketing officer and chief financial officer of the Windows Division at Microsoft said while signing the deal with Best Buy. And, now taking a step forward means bringing extra wings for the company.
