Los Angeles - Microsoft is planning to open 75 more retail stores over the next two to three years.
COO Kevin Turner made the announcement today during the company's annual Worldwide Partner Conference here, the Seattle Post Intelligencer reported.
Turner first announced Microsoft's plans for a brick-and-mortar chain to compete with Apple Stores at the same event three years ago. The software company has since opened 11 locations.
The latest rollout will be concentrated in California, Florida, Texas and the Northeast, according to a map Turner used during his keynote presentation.
