RUTLAND, Vt., Dec. 1, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- As people's lives become increasingly mobile and fast-paced, and to address the growing demand for advanced wireless data products and services, AT&T* today announced the opening of a new wireless retail store in Rutland.

"It would be hard to understate the vital role that wireless technology plays in driving our economy and in how we live our lives," said Rutland County Senator Kevin Mullin.  "I'm pleased that AT&T – through the opening of this new Rutland store – is making it easier for our citizens to have access to some of the most advanced wireless devices available anywhere."

The store, located at 476 Holiday Drive, replaces AT&T's older location on Main Street and has 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. Shoppers can also test out various advanced wireless data applications including GPS navigation, mobile social networking or mobile television.

The new Rutland store is led by Brian Tursi and has a staff of nine employees who are trained to assist customers — both business and consumer — with purchasing decisions, customer service and technical support. Hours of operation are Monday - Saturday, 9 a.m. - 9 p.m. and Sunday, 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.

The store will celebrate its grand opening today with an 8 a.m. ribbon cutting.

There are nine AT&T-owned retail locations in Vermont.  AT&T's products and services are also available at a number of other authorized dealers and national retail locations.
