AT&T opened a new wireless retail store in Rutland to address the growing demand for advanced wireless data products, such as headsets, and services.
"It would be hard to understate the vital role that wireless technology plays in driving our economy and in how we live our lives," said Rutland County Senator, Kevin Mullin, in a press release. "I'm pleased that AT&T (News - Alert), through the opening of this new Rutland store, is making it easier for our citizens to have access to some of the most advanced wireless devices available anywhere."
Located at 476 Holiday Drive, the store replaces AT&T's older location on Main Street and has a state-of-the-art, hands-on design to engage customers and provide a "try before buy" service experience. Demonstrations of a wide range of wireless products will be provided by trained sales consultants. Various advanced wireless data applications including GPS navigation, mobile social networking or mobile television can be easily tested by the shoppers.
Brian Tursi will lead the new Rutland store. It also has a staff of nine employees who are trained to assist customers, both business and consumer, with purchasing decisions, customer service and technical support.
With an 8 AM ribbon cutting, the newly launched store will celebrate its grand opening.
