i live in phoenix, not a computer store around except for best buy, where i buy what i can.....anyone know if micro center have plans to build a store in phoenix...i sure wish they would......
Thank you for posting on the Micro Center Community! Thank you for providing us a location you think a Micro Center would be great at! I don't really have the pay-grade to make the decision of opening up a location but I can send this to the people that are and see their thoughts and opinions!
The Phoenix area (specifically Maricopa County) added over 86,000 people measured from June 2019 to June 2020. Many came from California. Maricopa County is the 4th most populous county in the US and the most populous county WiTHOUT a Micro Center store. I hope this is taken into consideration when planning corporate store expansion...
PS: when I am in the LA area, I try to make time to visit Micro Center. It's a wonderful store and a great resource for system builders...
Thank you for your suggestion!
I'll add to this. Phoenix had two Fry's electronics location with huge buildings. As far as I can tell, the locations haven't been sold yet, but not sure which public records to look up to find out.
Thank you for your suggestion! Perhaps one day it can happen!
If the numbers help? Throw my hat into the "we NEED MC in Phoenix" ring.
I could commit to a yearly minimum in purchases :D
Thanks for showing support!
Please heavily consider opening a store in or around Buffalo, New York. Micro Center will also attract business from Ontario, Canada doing this. This territory will include Toronto which is a major city that would benefit from having a Micro Center near it.
There's always room for growth! We'll make sure our real estate team knows we're needed in Buffalo!
My MC PEEPs!
Always went to MC in Dallas even though Frys were everywhere. More knowledgeable and always bought my parts back in the day for my builds. Fast forward 20 years......now got kids and decided to have another go. Its already bad enough acquiring a GPU. But not having that microcenter down the street for just everyday needs on PC parts is FRUSTRATING! There is NOTHING in Phoenix. Frys is closed. Best Buy never has what you need and people only know how to look at twitter on their iPhones. OPEN ONE UP IN PHOENIX PLEASE.
Oh no, sorry to hear we're so far away! We get so many requests for the Phoenix area! We will get this over to our real estate team!
Amen to this. I actually came to the MC web page looking for a "Contact Us" page to ask that the Phoenix area be considered for the next store. We REALLY need one here and it is clearly a large enough metropolitan area to support it. There is no doubt in my mind it would be wildly successful, and Arizona is one of the most favorable venues for business due to the very conservative approach, low property taxes, super-low income tax, etc. That is why Intel, AMD, TSMC and Motorola all have huge facilities here. It is also a very tech-friendly enviornment. The state rewards businesses and business owners here rather than punish them... very similar to Texas.
Thanks for showing support! Perhaps one day we will expand in that area!
I know the population is smaller but one in Tucson would be great too 😉
Hmm, Tucson, you say? Sounds like we need to send this over to our real estate team for consideration!
Please build a Microcenter in Oklahoma City.
Thanks for your suggestion! Perhaps one day we will expand in that area!
"Petition for Microcenter to Open Up a Store in Phoenix, Arizona"
Posting this little site to show how badly how many enthusiastic people genuinely want a Microcenter in Arizona (I signed it too.) Ever since the closing of Fry's Electronics in Arizona, there are very very very few stores that host a comprehensive collection of electronic parts, machinery, or tech from various specific brands like Microcenter has in incredible abundance. I dare say there is no one at all unless you count Best buy as a contender. Howbeit, they only host established brands they sponsor or maintain a beneficial partnership with. Then there's the used market, a nightmare. Vainly trying to source parts in Arizona without going online is like the state itself, a desert. No doubt, if they set up shop here in this state, it would be an oasis for the many in Az.
Thanks for your sharing your interest of a store in Phoenix! Perhaps one day we will expand in that area!
Buffalo would be a great central hub for a future location in the Western New York/Ontario/Great Lakes region.
Buffalo has experienced a 6.5% population increase from the previous consensus in 2010. First time since 1950 has the city proper saw a population increase.
Buffalo is becoming a recognized tech hub and named one of the top fastest growing startup cities.
