COSTA MESA — Microsoft plans to open a second Orange County location at South Coast Plaza Thursday with a visit by reality TV power couple Lamar Odom and Khloé Kardashian, a store spokeswoman confirmed.
The opening will allow Microsoft to compete at the retail level with the Apple Store location at South Coast Plaza.
The 4,900 square-foot store is located on the first floor between the Jewel and Carousel courts, and will feature a selection of PCs running Windows software, Xbox consoles and the Xbox Kinect, Windows phones and a variety of software and accessories, spokeswoman Lindsey Kociela said Wednesday.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony is at 10 a.m. at the store. The first 150 people in line will receive two tickets to see and meet Selena Gomez, who will perform a special concert at South Coast Plaza on Saturday for the opening of the store. The following 800 will also receive a pair of tickets, but will not be able to meet the singer.
