New Microsoft store now open at U Village

October 20th, 2011 · No Comments

It was a high-energy grand opening at Seattle’s first Microsoft Store at UVillage this morning. Hundreds of people stood in line, some since last night, to get in and score tickets to Friday’s Black Keys concert.

We arrived shortly after the store opened at 9:30 and the line into the store still winded its way through the parking lot, which was blocked off for the big event.

If you missed this morning’s frenzy, don’t worry, it’s an ongoing celebration. At 5 p.m. today play Kinect with Seattle Sounders goalkeeping great Kasey Keller. Then at 7 p.m., legendary M’s slugger Edgar Martinez will step in to play.

On Friday at 7 p.m. The Black Keys will take the stage (you must go to the store to get tickets). Earlier in the day, at 2:30 p.m. OneRepublic will put on a special performance.
