Microsoft closes all retail locations due to COVID-19 concerns


Microsoft has announced it will close its retail locations globally due to concerns over the spread of COVID-19.

David Porter, VP of Microsoft stores, said in an announcement:

“With today’s recommendation from the United States government to not gather in groups of more than 10 people, we will be temporarily closing Microsoft Store locations – effective immediately,” wrote Porter.

We are closing all Microsoft Store locations to help protect the health and safety of our customers and our employees.

During this unprecedented time, the best way we can serve you is to do everything we can to help minimize the risk of the virus spreading. We will re-open as soon it is safe to do so.”
