Wichita, Kansas, November 18, 2011

Just in time for the holiday shopping season, AT&T* today marked the opening of a new store in Wichita designed to address the growing demand for advanced wireless and wired products and services.

The new 3,300-square-foot store is located at 11661 E. Kellogg Drive, Suite 101, Wichita, KS, 67207. The store features a state-of-the-art, hands-on design to engage shoppers and provide a “try before you buy” service experience. Trained consultants will provide demonstrations of a wide range of products and services, including the latest in smartphones and tablets.

Customers can also test drive various wireless data applications, including AT&T Navigator, which provides GPS navigation with turn-by-turn directions, or AT&T Family Map, a family locator service designed to help give parents peace of mind.

AT&T U-verseSM services, which include AT&T U-verse TV, AT&T U-verse High Speed Internet and AT&T U-verse Voice, also are available. Consumers say AT&T U-verse® TV outperforms all competitors in customer satisfaction in the region including Missouri and Kansas, according to the J.D. Power and Associates 2011 Residential Television Service Provider Satisfaction StudySM

“AT&T has a growing lineup of powerful smartphones, tablets and other devices and services to address our customers’ needs, whether it’s for work or entertainment,” said Nancy Garvey, vice president and general manager of AT&T’s Greater Midwest Region. “When customers walk into our retail stores, we’re not just trying to sell them a product - we’re trying to provide them a solution. That’s fulfilling our retail promise.”

“I have worked diligently to make sure Wichita is a great place to live, work and raise a family,” said Kansas Sen. Mike Petersen. “This new store not only supports the city’s economy, but also demonstrates that major companies like AT&T see the value of selecting Wichita as a choice location for business.”

KFBZ-FM 105.3 The Buzz is scheduled to conduct a radio remote at the new store 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 19. The Wichita Metro Chamber of Commerce also plans to host a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10 a.m. on Friday, Dec. 2.

“This new Wichita store, which is opening just in time for the holiday shopping season, is filled with the cutting-edge technologies driving today’s communications and entertainment services,” said Steve Hahn, AT&T Kansas president. “It is part of a wider company initiative to integrate our broad array of products and services with greater convenience and a streamlined approach to the way customers interact with and purchase our products.”

The new Wichita store is led by store manager Kyle Engels and has a staff trained to assist both consumer and business customers with purchasing decisions, customer service and technical support.
