Count it – store #8.

Microsoft will be opening it’s latest store this Thursday in the South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa, California.

Grand opening ceremonies will be Thursday at 9:30am and the store itself opens at 10am. Don’t know if Ballmer himself will be there, but Selena Gomez will be – she’s the weekend entertainment on Saturday the 26th at 2pm.

If you’re in the area, head over and get your Xbox and Windows Phone maybe at some special opening day discounts.
