"The store features a 360 degree digital wall that is about as complex as an IMAX video, every 30 seconds of video takes 12 hours to render," Microsoft Store general manager Mika Krammer said.

Dozens of people camped out overnight for the store's grand opening at 9:30 a.m.

Krammer says they picked Park Meadows as its new home because it is an exciting environment. She says they looked for the best malls in the nation to build a store, and Park Meadows was a top choice.

In addition to a range of Microsoft products, the store offers a range of services for customers, including personal training sessions and the opportunity for community groups to gather and learn new tech skills.

Giveaways on opening day, Thursday, included gift bags with items such as Xbox games and T-shirts. The first 1,000 people in line received two passes to see Disney's Demi Lovato in concert Saturday at Park Meadows.

Microsoft's chief operating officer Kevin Turner led a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 9:30 a.m. Thursday, and presented up to $500,000 worth of software and hardware donations to local charities.
