Microsoft Store Coming to Freehold & Bridgewater in New Jersey!

On March 15th, the Microsoft Store announced they are opening new stores in New Jersey!  The two newest stores will be in Freehold, NJ at the Freehold Raceway Mall and in Bridgewater, NJ at the Bridgewater Commons Mall.

You can read the news in the Jersey Shore’s paper of record: The Asbury Park Press

I was at the Freehold Raceway Mall this past weekend, and the temporary store front looks great!

For anyone that uses Microsoft products (pretty much MOST folks!), it will be great to have these new stores in the area finally!  If you haven’t heard about the Microsoft Store, learn more by visiting their website.  The Microsoft Store makes it easy to buy software from Microsoft and Microsoft partners in an environment where the folks know what they’re talking about. 

If Aunt Betty needs a new copy of Office for her PC, she can hop over to the mall and pick one up while shopping.  Want to check out the XBox Kinect in action and get the latest video game accessories?  Considering the hot new Nokia Lumia 900 Windows Phone that just came out this week?  These will all be things you can do at the Microsoft Stores when they arrive here in Jersey!

The best thing about these stores, is that if you’re looking for a new PC (whether it’s a laptop, slate, or desktop), EVERY PC sold comes with “Microsoft Signature” on it!  What is that?!  Have you ever purchased a new computer that was loaded with trial-ware and sample software that just slows the machine down?  Yeah… I think we all know that experience.  With Microsoft Signature, you get a PC with no extra “junk” that is tuned to run with the best performance the moment you start it up for the first time!

If you ever have a problem with a PC purchased at the Microsoft Store, you’ll be able to take it to there and get someone to help you out.

That alone is one of the things I’m most looking forward to when these stores open!  For now, we’ll have to wait.  Until then, visit to keep up on the latest information, including opening dates when they are announced!
