BOSTON, Dec. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- In 2018, Comcast opened seven interactive Xfinity Stores in New England, bringing the regional total to 29. The stores – located from Holyoke, MA to Manchester, NH -- are a key part of the company's multi-year strategy to transform the customer experience, and provide a welcoming, state-of-the-art environment for customers to learn to optimize their Xfinity products and services.
The new Xfinity Stores are conveniently located at popular shopping destinations and feature trained and knowledgeable sales consultants, flat screen TVs, interactive iPads and a dedicated seating area for demonstrations of Xfinity products and apps.
Xfinity stores are designed strategically by product area —Xfinity Mobile, Xfinity X1, Xfinity Home and Xfinity Internet – so our customers can see our industry-leading products in action.
- Xfinity Mobile is a key part of Xfinity stores – customers can purchase new mobile phones, or bring their own Apple devices and choose a flexible data plan based on their individual needs – electing to pay by the gig or choose unlimited.
- Discover xFi, the Xfinity personalized home WiFi experience, and learn how to view and control network devices through the app, site or voice remote in the Xfinity Internet zone.
- X1, our next generation video platform, is featured in a living room environment, so customers can try the voice remote and see how X1 works firsthand.
- The Connected Home Zone section showcases how Xfinity Home combines the best of home security and automation into one simple experience – customers can learn how they can control an increasing number of IoT devices from their phone, tablet or Xfinity Home touchscreen.
"As our offerings evolve and expand, we want to bring our customers a retail experience which showcases the power and innovation of our Xfinity products and demonstrates how they work together," said Steve Driscoll, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Comcast's Greater Boston Region. "Our store employees have a passion for technology, provide great service and work one-on-one with each customer. Plus, in many stores like Manchester, we also have multi-lingual employees to better serve that community."
Ongoing Customer Experience Enhancement
Customers can also "Book an Appointment" on Xfinity.com before a store visit. Simply look up your local store here and then select "Book an Appointment" for the store location of your choice. This feature provides either 15 or 45 minute sessions with an associate to make it easier for customers to exchange equipment, learn more about Xfinity services and apps or review their account to ensure they're in the best possible package to meet their communications and entertainment needs.
