Asheville, North Carolina, October 31, 2011

AT&T* today opened a new store in Asheville to address the growing demand for advanced wireless and wired products and services. The store, located at 4 S. Tunnel Rd., is 3,285-square-feet – almost twice the size of its former location on Patton Avenue.

The new Asheville 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 mobile devices, such as the Samsung Galaxy S II 4G and Motorola ATRIX II 4G.

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.

“AT&T has a growing lineup of powerful smart phones and wireless devices to address our customers’ needs, whether it’s for work or recreation,” said Laurent Therivel, vice president and general manager of AT&T’s Mobility and Consumer Markets in the Carolinas. “When they walk into our retail stores, we’re not just trying to sell them a product, we’re trying to provide them a solution.”

The new Tunnel Road store is led by store manager Dennis Therien and has a staff of about 12 employees who are trained to assist both consumer and business customers with purchasing decisions, customer service and technical support. Store hours are Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday, 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. The phone number is 1-828-298-1833.

AT&T has 69 retail locations in the Carolinas.
