AT&T Opens New Stores in Cleveland Metro

Brings Additional Retail Presence for Avon and Medina Customers

Cleveland, Ohio, January 21, 2010


AT&T* is announcing two new locations to provide products and services for customers in the Cleveland area. To begin the new year, AT&T recently opened a new retail store at 35925 Detroit Road in Avon and introduced a relocated store in Medina at 1088 North Court Street at the North Court Shoppes.

The new stores which opened their doors in late December both feature a spacious showroom with a hands-on, interactive design that redefines the meaning of customer experience. For example, touch-screen information stations make it easy for customers to view rate plans, coverage maps and shop for devices, accessories and ringtones. Interactive experience stations allow customers to test-drive AT&T’s portfolio of cutting-edge wireless, broadband and wireline products and services, such as 3G netbooks and smartphones, downloadable music, messaging, streaming video, data, Web browsing and more.

"This new AT&T store is a welcome addition to Avon and brings even more options for shoppers to the region," said Sen. Sue Morano. "AT&T's investment in opening new wireless stores will continue Avon’s reputation as a strong city for business."

Rep. Matt Lundy added that, “I appreciate the investment in providing access to cutting-edge technology that AT&T is offering residents in and around the greater Cleveland area.”

AT&T customers now have 12 locations to choose from in the greater Cleveland area. AT&T has approximately 130 retail locations throughout Ohio, including AT&T-owned stores, agents and national retailers.

“We’re giving our customers greater convenience and a hands-on experience with our products and services,” said Tom Pelto, president of AT&T Ohio. “Whatever their communications and entertainment needs, they can find it and try it before they buy it, and they can do it all under one roof.”

Operating hours for both new stores are 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday through Friday, 10 a.m.-7 p.m. on Saturday, and 12 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Sunday.
