ORANGEBURG, NY — Verizon Wireless, the leading wireless company with the most reliable voice and data network, today announced the opening of a new authorized retail outlet in Manhattan to make shopping for the company’s wireless voice and data products more convenient for local residents and businesses. J.L. Wireless, located at 326 Audubon Avenue between 181st & 182nd Streets, now offers a wide variety of wireless phones, accessories and service from Verizon Wireless.
J.L. Wireless, owned by José Luis López, became a new Verizon Wireless authorized retailer in April 2008. The new store’s hours are Monday through Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Customers may activate Verizon Wireless service at J.L.

Verizon Wireless authorized retailers receive extensive training, as well as merchandising support and competitive commissions, after successfully completing a highly selective qualification process. Authorized retailers play a key role in the company’s retail sales distribution strategy, which includes 2,400 company-owned and operated Verizon Wireless Communications Stores nationwide.
Verizon Wireless is the only major carrier to offer a 30-day test drive of its network. If at any point during the 30-day Test Drive customers are not satisfied with their experience and take their number to another wireless carrier, Verizon Wireless will refund their money for their voice calls, equipment, activation fee and taxes, as well as release them from their contract without early termination fee when they return their phone within the Test Drive period.
Currently the company is looking for bilingual English-Spanish speaking entrepreneurs interested in joining the Verizon Wireless authorized agent team in New York and Northern New Jersey neighborhoods with large Spanish-speaking populations.
