Redmond, Wash. — Microsoft plans to provide retailers with in-store customer service representatives to assist shoppers with their PC-related purchases.
According to a report by the Associated Press, the software giant expects to deploy 155 “Microsoft Gurus” in U.S. chains like Best Buy and Circuit City by the end of the year.

The effort is part of Microsoft’s new $300 million marketing campaign,
