Microsoft Retail Grand Opening Festivities in Tulsa, OK

Microsoft Retail Grand Opening Festivities in Tulsa, OK

Thanks to some awesome connections, I hosted a preview event at the all new Microsoft retail store in Tulsa, OK.

The Tulsa retail store marks the 109th Microsoft full retail store in the U.S and Canada and the second store in Oklahoma.
A few of my #SMTULSA peeps, joined me for a quick tour of the store and the geek out over some of the latest Microsoft toys.
My favorites were the Surface Pro3, the Microsoft Band, and of course the Maker Bot 3D printer.

The store itself is pretty cool. Located across the hall and a few doors down from that other tech store, the Microsoft Store in Woodland Hills Mall will be a great addition
to the mall during the holiday season and beyond.

Enough about my tour, let’s get this party started.
