There’s a weird game of musical stores going on at 89-93 Montague Street. The Blue Rose clothing store, located in the corner store has moved to the middle location next door to make room for what the Brooklyn Eagle reports is a “three week pre-Mother’s Day program” offered by Microsoft.

The store will be open from April 19 until Mother’s Day May 11. Photos will be available at portraitsofmom.com .
