An Upgraded Tech Shopping Experience

Micro Center opened our first store in Houston across West Loop South (I-610) from the Houston Galleria back in 1994. Micro Center introduced an unprecedented computer shopping experience with a superior level of customer service and employee expertise. Quickly, Micro Center Houston became the go-to store for computer buyers of all levels of knowledge in the Houston region. As one customer put it, "Houston is lucky to have Micro Center!"

Micro Center created an even more fun shopping experience with a totally new store 1.5 miles south of The Galleria at 5305 South Rice Avenue off of the Southwest Freeway (I-69). Micro Center Houston includes all of Micro Center’s latest store design innovations along with our unrivaled, guaranteed in-stock selection of over 25,000 items — desktops, laptops, electronics, and everything you could want for gaming — from your favorite tech brands. Our shopping environment is wide open and inviting with a Do-it-Yourself area for Makers, more spacious departments for Apple, printers and televisions, and a mobile accessories area. Come by today to experience what makes Micro Center Houston the unsurpassed source for computers, Apple products, software, accessories and computer parts for building your next PC. We look forward to greeting you!
