Microsoft announced Friday that it is closing its Microsoft Store physical retail locations globally as part of a "strategic change in its retail operations."

The company said in a news release that its retail team members will continue to serve consumers from Microsoft corporate facilities and remotely with sales, training and support. There are 82 stores listed on its store locator, including 73 U.S. locations.

“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 the release. “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.”

Apple re-closings: LinkedIn post Friday that the company would also "reimagine new spaces that serve our customers, including our Microsoft facilities in London, New York City, Sydney and Redmond campus locations."

In mid-March, Microsoft closed its physical stores due to the COVID-19 pandemic and moved retail team members to remote work.
