We finally have some information and confirmation about the Microsoft Store opening for the retail location that will be here in Jacksonville, Florida.


As you know I have been tracking this store and its progress for several months now.

Back in July of this year when we confirmed the store was going to be in Jacksonville at the St. John’s Town Center and then in August we saw the physical indicators that verified the stores location at the St. John’s Town Center.

Since then we have been waiting on news of when the store would open and now it seems all the details are available at the Jacksonville Microsoft Store’s information page.

Here is the key info:

  • Thursday, 21 November 2013
    • 10:00 PM – You can begin lining up to be one of the first 1500 inline for the opening and free concert tickets.
  • Friday, 22 November 2013
    • 10:30 AM – Grand Opening ceremonies.
    • 11:00 AM – Store opens to the public and the first 1500 people in line for the opening on Friday will get two free tickets to a concert the next day.
  • Saturday, 23 November 2013
    • 10:00 AM – You can start lining up to get into the Macklemore and Ryan Lewis concert.
    • 12:00 PM – Gates open for Macklemore and Ryan Lewis live concert.
    • 2:00 PM – Concert scheduled to begin.

The Microsoft Store Facebook page has an event created for the Jacksonville Grand Opening which you can join and indicate your plans to attend the events.

Looks like it will be a great weekend of events for the stores opening.

See you out there!
