New Verizon Wireless Retail Store In Salinas, California, Features Innovative Floor Plan

WALNUT CREEK, CA — Verizon Wireless will open a new retail location in Salinas, California. The store features the company’s new open floor plan design, which connects the service center and sales floor to offer added support for its customers. The new store will open for business on Friday, February 10.

The retail store relocated to 1900 N. Main Street from its old location 1970 N. Main Street in Salinas. The new Verizon Wireless store features an open floor plan that removes the walls between the service area and sales floor, making the entire store one department designed to streamline the sales process and enhance the customer experience. Verizon’s tech-savvy sales representatives are trained to showcase the latest and most innovative products and services. Among the new store’s features are:

  • High-definition plasma screens showcasing the latest wireless multimedia applications such as V CAST and Get It Now®.
  • More than 50 working models of handsets, pc cards and other devices for customers to handle and test.
  • A greeter kiosk that enables customers to check in electronically before browsing the store and then talk with a representative who will already have their account background and reason for visiting the store keyed up on the customer-service computer.
  • A bill payment kiosk that enables customers to pay their bills quickly and easily using checks, cash or credit/debit cards.

“We are excited to be bringing this new store format to Salinas,” said Kevin Zavaglia, region president for Verizon Wireless. “This new design allows customers to have an interactive shopping experience with hands-on demos of our cutting edge tech products and services, including 4G LTE smartphones, tablets, jetpacks and more.”

Customers are invited to the new Salinas store to celebrate the grand opening throughout the weekend of February 10-12.

The Salinas store is open Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. – 8 p.m.; and Sunday 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. The telephone number is (831) 442-7850. Verizon Wireless Communications Stores offer a premier line of digital wireless phones and tablets in all price ranges, data services and accessories.
