PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Excitement is building for the newest store to come to downtown Portland.

Thursday is the grand opening for the Microsoft Store at the corner of Southwest Yamhill Street and Southwest 3rd Avenue.

A crowd of a few hundred gathered outside of the store. Some started arriving Wednesday morning. Before the doors open, a grand opening ceremony is scheduled with raffles, free food and even a DJ.

When the doors open for customers, they'll be able to get their hands on everything Microsoft, including Windows 8 PCs, Windows phones and XBox 360s for all of the gamers.

But some people waiting outside the store said they were more excited to see Weezer perform at a grand opening concert.

The first two hundred people in line will get tickets to see them perform Friday night and a ticket to meet the band. The concert begins Friday at 7 p.m. at Pioneer Place.
