Huge Line Outside New Microsoft Store
By Pat Boyle
Microsoft opens a store in downtown Portland today. The store at Pioneer Place at SW Third and Yamhill drew a line of more than a thousand people waiting for the 11am opening. The first thousand customers get free tickets to a Weezer concert tomorrow at Pioneer Courthouse Square.
The store has interactive digital monitors that let you play Xbox 360 games. 45 people have been hired; both full and part time.
