Microsoft Corp. announced June 26 that it was closing all of its physical Microsoft Store locations as part of a "strategic change" in its retail operations. The Microsoft Store at Stonebriar Centre, located at 2601 Preston Road, Ste. 1176, Frisco, is among the company-wide closures.

“Our sales have grown online as our product portfolio has evolved to largely digital offerings, and our talented team has proven success serving customers beyond any physical location,” Microsoft corporate vice president David Porter said in a statement. “We are grateful to our Microsoft Store customers, and we look forward to continuing to serve them online and with our retail sales team at Microsoft corporate locations.”

Microsoft plans to continue providing sales, product training, virtual workshops and support through its online storefronts, according to a news release. The Stonebriar Centre location has been closed since March because of the coronavirus pandemic, according to the release.
