ARLINGTON, Va., Nov. 22, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- AT&T* today announced the opening of a new wireless retail store in Arlington, Va., to address the growing demand for advanced wireless data products and services. Located in the Pentagon City Mall, 1100 South Hayes Street, the store features a state-of-the-art, hands-on design to engage customers and provide a "try before buy" service experience.
Trained sales consultants will provide demonstrations of a wide range of wireless products and services, including the latest in mobile devices. Shoppers can also test out various advanced wireless data applications including GPS navigation and mobile social networking.
"We want to ensure our customers have an exceptional in-store experience, and that begins with a convenient store location, layout, and knowledgeable staff," said Rob Forsyth, vice president and general manager for AT&T in northern Virginia, Washington, D.C., and Maryland. "We are excited to be a part of the robust Arlington community by providing wireless products and services that help keep customers connected at work, home, or on the go."
The Pentagon City Mall store is led by Robert Silverstein and has a staff of eight employees who are trained to assist customers — both business and consumer — with purchasing decisions, customer service and technical support. Hours of operation are Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. - 9:30 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. - 6 p.m. It joins two other new AT&T-owned retail stores that opened in northern Virginia earlier this year – in Leesburg, 1604 Village Market Blvd., as well as in Woodbridge, 14900 Potomac Town Place.
