To address the growing demand for advanced wireless data products and services, AT&T* today announced a grand opening celebration for a new high-tech wireless store on Aramingo Avenue in Philadelphia. The store will celebrate with a formal ribbon cutting ceremony at 3 p.m. on May 26 followed by a special in-store appearance by Philadelphia Phillies’ catcher Carlos Ruiz at 6 p.m. the same evening. Ruiz will be on hand to sign AT&T autograph cards only between 6 p.m. – 7 p.m. No personal memorabilia will be permitted.
“AT&T’s recent investment in its greater Philadelphia wireless network combined with the company’s newest retail store underscore a firm commitment to the city’s economic growth,” said Councilman Frank DiCicco of the First District. “We applaud AT&T’s continued investment in the community, as it benefits both local businesses and consumers alike.”
AT&T has invested nearly $700 million in its Philadelphia area wireless and wireline network from 2008 through 2010 as part of its commitment to superior service in the area.
Located at 3584 Aramingo Avenue, the new store is led by industry veteran Adrian Pelzer and has a team of eight trained sales consultants who can demonstrate a wide range of products and assist both consumers and businesses with purchasing decisions, customer service and technical support. Hours of operation are Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. – 8 p.m., Sunday 11 a.m. – 6p.m.
As part of the grand opening celebration, consumers can check out special discounts including up to $50 off select smartphone devices.**
There are more than 90 AT&T owned stores in the greater Philadelphia area. AT&T’s products and services are also available at a number of authorized dealer and national retail locations.
