DICKSON CITY, PA — In response to the growing demand for the company's wireless voice and data products and services, Verizon Wireless has opened a new Communications Store in Dickson City. The new store has been designed to make wireless shopping more convenient for new customers and to provide current customers with greater access to customer and technical support services. Located at 1504 Scranton-Carbondale Highway in Dickson City, the store is open Monday through Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. and Sunday 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
"This expansion represents our commitment to provide customers with increased convenience and an accessible, knowledgeable sales staff," said Mario Turco, director of retail sales for Verizon Wireless' Philadelphia Tri-State region. "Demand for our wireless services continues to grow as more people take advantage of our America's Choice® and FamilyShare price plans, and our popular data services like wireless broadband, V CAST downloadable music and on demand video, picture messaging and text messaging."
Store Manager, Gene Skutack will oversee a staff of eight full-time employees at the new 2,500-square-foot store. The store features the full range of Verizon Wireless' products and services and is fully staffed for customer service and technical support, allowing customers to speak with Verizon Wireless' highly trained representatives about all their wireless needs.
The store also provides a HopeLine® phone collection bin where anyone can donate no-longer-used wireless handsets and accessories. Through the award-winning Verizon Wireless HopeLine program, most of the donated handsets and equipment are refurbished and sold, with proceeds going to support domestic violence awareness and prevention programs. Remaining handsets are recycled in an environmentally-friendly way.
