Microsoft Store Australia and Italy have opened

Over the past several months, the Microsoft Store team has been working hard at improving our stores.  2 notable areas we’re working on is getting ready for the big launch of image Windows 7 as well as expanding our global footprint. 

As we all anticipate Windows 7’s launch on October 22, we have some great news to share in the meantime.

Today, we opened up 2 new additional international stores – Microsoft Store Italy and Microsoft Store Australia!

Both of these new stores are currently offering Microsoft software by download, or download + backup media.  We are continually looking to expand our catalog in each of our international stores, so be patient with us :)

The past year has seen us open up several international stores, and with these 2 new stores, we now have presence in 12 countries world-wide.

If you’re a customer of one of our new stores, drop us a comment here, or on Twitter and let us know what you think!

    Hi Trevin

    Kudos for all the good work!

    I think one thing that would be really nice is consistency across the board with URLs.

    For example in this post the URLs for the Italian store vs the Australian store. Small things such as referencing stores by http://microsoftstore.it vs http://www.microsoftstore.it (even though there’s a redirect) compared to http://www.microsoftstore.com.au/ vs. http://microsoftstore.com.au/

    Nit picking but still mentioning it based on my experience with the online Apple store URLs.
