Technology giant Microsoft has announced plans to open its first flagship Microsoft Store in the UK on Regent Street at Oxford Circus. This location will join flagship Microsoft Stores on Fifth Avenue in New York and Pitt Street Mall in Sydney.
'Regent Street’s transformation into the world’s most popular shopping destination has been driven by attracting flagships and firsts. We’re therefore delighted to be working in partnership with Microsoft, whose arrival will be another fantastic global brand for our millions of shoppers and visitors,' says James Cooksey, director of The Crown Estate’s Central London portfolio, which includes Regent Street.
Microsoft will join other UK and global flagships and firsts that opened on Regent Street, including Michael Kors, &Other Stories, Arket and Weekday.
The letting forms part of The Crown Estate’s on-going £1 billion investment programme for Regent Street.
