To address the growing demand for advanced wireless data products and services, AT&T* today is announcing the grand opening of a new 2,400-square-foot retail store located at 1412 Higdon Ferry Rd, Ark. 71913.

The new store offers shoppers an interactive shopping experience, along with a state-of-the-art, hands-on design to engage customers and provide a “try before buy” sales environment. Trained sales consultants can provide demonstrations of a wide range of mobile broadband enabled wireless products and services. Shoppers can also test out the latest quick messaging devices, smartphones and netbooks and learn how to get the most out of social networking, managing photos or GPS navigation services on an AT&T device, like the new Motorola ATRIX 4G or HTC Inspire 4G.

“Investment like this continues to drive economic growth in our area,” said Dave Byerly, CEO/President of The Greater Hot Springs Chamber of Commerce. “We appreciate the strong relationship that exists between AT&T and the growing business community in Hot Springs.”

  • AT&T @ Home. Customers can browse the Internet and customize homepage portals.
  • Smartphones & Messaging. The latest e-mail and quick messaging devices all under one roof.

  • Laptop Solutions. Mobile broadband-enabled netbooks. The brand new netbooks feature 10-inch screens, weigh less than 3 pounds and are ultra portable and operate on the nation’s fastest mobile broadband network.
