Newest Microsoft Store Ready For Grand Opening At Woodland Hills
TULSA, Oklahoma - A new place to buy cutting edge technology is opening in Tulsa's Woodland Hills Mall just in time for the holiday shopping season.
Anyone can check out Microsoft's brand new retail store starting Thursday, but we were able to get a sneak preview at what's to come.
Microsoft is about to open its newest retail outlet, one of more than 100 and it's the second one in Oklahoma.
Out front everything was still covered up Wednesday, but inside there were lots of people putting the finishing touches on everything getting ready to open.
Store manager Jared Harris is excited for the store to open, and to show off the new Xbox One.
"Not only does it recognize that there are people in the room, it will specify me to you. It will learn who you and I are once we have a user account set up," he explained to me.
If you're one of the first 200 people in line Thursday, you'll get the opportunity to play Xbox with and against NFL and OSU legend Barry Sanders.
The store also has a full-service answers desk, technology workshops and lots more.
"Think of this place as someplace you can go and just enjoy the experiences, that's what we are about here is experiences," Harris said.
The store officially opens at 11:00 Thursday morning, but there is a ribbon-cutting and other activities beginning at 10:30.
The new Microsoft store is on the lower level of Woodland Hills near JC Penney.
