ALEXANDRIA, Va. -- Bell Atlantic NYNEX Mobile has just moved its
Alexandria Communications Store from Duke Street to Landmark Plaza on
Little River Turnpike. In addition, the company also announced it
will open a kiosk sales facility nearby in Alexandria's Landmark Mall.
The new 9,835 square-foot Bell Atlantic NYNEX Mobile Communications
Store at the Plaza at Landmark Shopping Center is a full-service sales
showroom, plus service and installation location that employs 25
people. Shoppers can find a complete selection of cellular phones,
pagers, wireless data equipment, and accessories. On hand is a
specially-trained staff who can help determine which cellular, paging
or data equipment and services will fit customers' communications
The new Alexandria Bell Atlantic NYNEX Mobile Communications Store is
located at 6198-M Little River Turnpike, near Total Beverage and Crown
Books. The store was moved to this location to be more convenient to
customers. The new facility has a much larger showroom and provides
more parking. The phone number is 703-813-9600. The store hours are
10am to 8pm, Mondays through Fridays, 10am to 5pm Saturdays, and noon
to 4pm Sundays.
The Bell Atlantic NYNEX Mobile kiosk in Landmark Mall will serve as a
satellite sales facility to the full-service Communications Store. It
will be located between Hecht's and JC Penny on the lower level. Its
hours of operation are 10am to 10pm Mondays through Saturdays, and
noon to 6pm Sundays. The phone number is 703-658-4298.
"With two locations in Alexandria, we'll be more convenient to our
business and association customers, as well as general consumers,"
said Gary Schulman, president of Bell Atlantic NYNEX Mobile in the
Washington/Baltimore region. "Because of the mobility of Alexandria's
residents and commuters, and the dense population of the area,
there's great demand for cellular services here."
The store manager is Alice Marchand, a nine-year veteran with Bell
Atlantic NYNEX Mobile. She will also oversee operations at the kiosk
in Landmark Mall.
