Store hours are Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. - 9:30 p.m. and Sunday
11 a.m. - 6 p.m.

The store features a wide variety of wireless products and services, including [FREEUP] - a new prepaid wireless service which offers nationwide voice service with no long distance or roaming charges, text messaging and no monthly bills or contracts. A premier line of price plans, including a new DigitalChoice® and SingleRatesm East plan featuring 3,000 free off-peak minutes is available.

The Hamilton Mall store opening is one of eight new retail locations Verizon Wireless plans to open this year in the Philadelphia Tri-State Region. Verizon Wireless now owns and operates 32 Communications Stores and kiosks in the Region.
