December 7, 2000



Just in time for the busy holiday shopping season, Verizon Wireless celebrates the grand opening of its first two retail stores in Boise.

One store is located on Rifleman, two blocks north of the Towne Square Mall, the other is at Ram Plaza, on the corner of Broadway and Park. Both Verizon Wireless Communications stores feature a wide variety of wireless products and services, including the popular SingleRatesm
service and a premier line of digital wireless phones, data products, pagers and accessories. Trained wireless professionals are on hand to assist customers in selecting equipment and making decisions on calling plans.

"As the holidays approach, Verizon Wireless has made shopping more convenient for Boise consumers with these new retail locations," said Marni Walden, president for the Mountain Region for Verizon Wireless. "As with our other stores throughout the state, these stores will not only sell wireless products and services, but will provide customer service after the sale."

With the addition of these two Boise locations, Verizon Wireless now has six stores throughout southern Idaho. The Boise Communications stores are open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday.
