TREVOSE, Pa., April 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Comcast today held a special reception and ribbon-cutting event to announce the grand opening of its Xfinity Store in Langhorne, the first facility of its kind in Pennsylvania. The 2,300 square foot center, designed entirely around the needs and feedback of Comcast customers, will provide consumers with an opportunity to explore, learn about and interact with the latest Xfinity products and services. Customers will also be able to pay their Comcast bills as well as return and pick up equipment at the store.
Elected officials and community leaders, including Pennsylvania State Representative Frank Farry, a representative from the office of Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick and Lower Bucks Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Dan Bates, came out to help celebrate the opening and tour the new space. Additionally, Jamie Haddon, president and CEO of United Way of Bucks County, was in attendance to accept a $2,500 donation from Comcast to support digital literacy and Internet safety for area middle school children.
The new Xfinity Store is conveniently located just off Route 1 at 518 North Oxford Valley Road and features flat screen TVs and a seating area with a 3D television set and glasses that allow visitors to experience 3D viewing. Customers can also try out Comcast's converged services and popular apps like the Xfinity TV app for iPad. Kiosks around the center provide the opportunity to experience Xfinity TV, test drive Xfinity Internet speeds, make calls with Xfinity Voice service and learn more about Xfinity Home, a new security and home control solution that Comcast has launched in Bucks County and in the region and is currently rolling out nationwide.
In addition, customers will receive personalized service from trained and knowledgeable sales consultants, along with time-saving features like a queuing system that allows customers to explore the store instead of waiting in line for service.
"We couldn't be happier about introducing the Xfinity Store in Bucks County, home of our regional headquarters, and to provide our customers with a more welcoming, efficient and interactive environment where they can experience our Xfinity products and services first-hand," said LeAnn Talbot, senior vice president for Comcast's Freedom Region. "We continuously strive to integrate the latest and most cutting-edge technologies into our offerings, and we are applying that same level of innovation, speed and utility to customer service, making it even easier for customers to do business with us."
"Comcast continues to be a supportive partner for the Chamber and the county," said Dan Bates, interim president of Lower Bucks Chamber of Commerce. "The Chamber is thrilled to see new business opportunities such as the investment made by Comcast through their new Xfinity Store in Langhorne. It shows a clear and continued commitment to local business and the community at large."
