For those who don’t know, Oxford Circus is a popular place in London and it is indeed a good place to expand its consumer retail stores. The Oxford Circus will be a notable presence of Microsoft Store outside of the United States.
As per the reports from RetailWeek, Microsoft is looking to establish a store in locale shopping area, currently occupied by United Colours of Benetton. The company will sign a 10-year lease on the building in the popular shopping locale, Oxford Circus.
