Microsoft's new downtown Portland store opens to the public today, just a block from the long-anticipated Apple location that is currently under construction.

The Microsoft store is one of few in downtown Portland to offer a full range of consumer electronic products, including desktop and laptop computers, tablets, game systems and phones. The store also features a service area where customers can receive free 15-minute repair consultation on devices they already own. In the middle of the bright and airy location is an area the community can use as a free meeting space and where the company will hold free technology camps for kids age 8 to 12 this summer.

At the company's 10:30 a.m. ribbon-cutting today, Microsoft will hand out $1.25 million in grants to three local nonprofits, including the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry. The first 1,000 or so customers in the store will receive free tickets to a Weezer in Pioneer Courthouse Square on Friday; the first 200 will also receive passes to an after-party where they'll meet the band.
