AT&T Upgrades Retail Presence in Hampton Roads With New Retail Locations in Virginia Beach and Williamsburg

To address the growing demand for advanced wireless data products and services, AT&T* is celebrating the grand opening of two recently relocated stores that offer shoppers an innovative high-tech, interactive shopping experience.

The store locations have a state-of-the-art, hands-on design to engage customers and provide a “try before buy” sales environment. Trained sales consultants can provide demonstrations of a wide range of wireless products and services. Shoppers can also test out the latest smart phones, quick messaging devices, and learn how to get the most out of social networking or GPS navigation services on an AT&T device.

“The new design showcases our wide portfolio of advanced wireless voice and data products in an innovative way that lets customers touch and feel today’s exciting new services before they make their selection,” said Erika K. Thompson-Kemp, vice president and general manager of AT&T in Virginia and West Virginia.

The Virginia Beach store located at 4725 Virginia Beach Boulevard is led by wireless veteran Harold Rose and has a staff of eight consultants who can assist consumers and businesses with device selection, technical assistance and customer support. The Williamsburg store is located at 5226 Monticello Avenue and has a team of seven consultants led by store manager Sam Lheureux. Hours of operation for both locations are Monday – Saturday 9 a.m. – 9 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m. – 7 p.m.

AT&T operates 50 AT&T-owned retail locations in Virginia. AT&T’s products and services are also available at a number of other authorized dealers and national retail locations.
