When I say “pop up” I’m not talking about a little kiosk that peddles cell phone bling or $20 ballcaps. I’m talking a nice looking external store that should generate some buzz for Surface. Ryan Lowdermilk showed us his store earlier today. It looks fantastic.

To find the one nearest you browse to:
At the top of this page you will see “Store Locations.” Use the pick a store location and browse to your state or city. Your Holiday store should be listed as coming soon but there are details within the page that should be helpful. Here are the details for my location. You can see below that Microsoft is providing the location inside the mall where the pop up can be found. Tastefully by the Abercrombie and Fitch!
So, if you are anywhere near one of these icons above you have some work to do this weekend! Get to your store location. Scope it out and take photos. Come back to Surface Geeks and hit the forums. There is a dedicated section for Microsoft Stores. Start a post for your location and lets get talking about Surface. I would like to arrange a line party for my location!
I’m ready to stand in line, are you?
