Omaha, Nebraska, April 15, 2009
AT&T* today announced the opening of the recently relocated retail store in Omaha, unveiling a unique way to experience and shop for an array of communications and entertainment services. Located at 7820 Dodge Street, the nearly 3,000-square-foot AT&T store is larger and more expansive than the traditional layout and features several new retail concepts.
Among the new store features is the Guided Selling station, which customers can use independently or with the assistance of an AT&T representative. The kiosk enables customers to sort, compare and select the best wireless device and service plan to fit their needs. The kiosk also provides information on GoPhone®, wireless data access for laptops and smartphone data plans. This easy to use kiosk gives customers the opportunity to learn more about the features and devices that best suit their wireless lifestyle.
"We're delighted to have AT&T and this beautiful new store as part of our local business community," said State Sen. John Nelson. "AT&T and Nebraska are a great match. AT&T is a world-class company offering good jobs, and Nebraska offers an attractive work force. The result of this marriage is continued growth and prosperity for the state, Omaha and AT&T."
"This distinctive new design completely encompasses what AT&T is all about. Customers are able to test-drive our products and services, before selecting the product that keeps them connected anywhere and anytime," said David Fine, vice president and general manager for AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets in Nebraska. "Our goal is to make our customers' in-store experience as pleasant as possible and that begins with a convenient store location, expansive layout and knowledgeable staff."
