The Microsoft store planned for Oakbrook Center in Oak Brook will open on Nov. 4, making the Chicago-area location the fifth such store for the technology giant.

Microsoft’s first store opened a year ago in Scottsdale, Arizona and the company also has locations in Mission Viejo, Calif., Lone Tree, Colo., and San Diego.

Microsoft is also holding a philanthropic campaign to coincide with the store opening. The company will donate up to $1 million in software grants to three local organizations, with the distribution determined via open voting on the Microsoft Store Facebook page. The three groups in Chicago are TechGYRLS, the Chicago Academy for Advanced Technology and Melrose Park School.
