Microsoft Quashes Australian Retail Store Rumours

With a second Apple Store about to open its doors in Sydney and anticipation building that Samsung will soon open its own store, it’s not crazy to think that Microsoft will bring its successful retail model down to Australia, is it? Oh, it is.

WP Down Under reported comments from an anonymous source this week that pointed to Microsoft opening its first retail store in Australia in the coming months, but Microsoft Australia have today decided to stop that report in its tracks.

Microsoft today gave us this statement:

Talk of a Microsoft Store in Australia is purely rumour and speculation, and we don’t comment on rumour and speculation. Microsoft sells through a strong network of retail partners in Australia and will continue to do so.

Damn. I wanted to go to there, if only for the awkward dance routines.
