MANCHESTER, CT — In response to growing demand for the company's voice and data products and services, Verizon Wireless has opened a fourth location in the Manchester area. Located inside the new BJs Wholesale Club at 1046 Tolland Turnpike, the store is open Monday through Saturday 9 a.m. to 9 p.m; and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

"This expansion represents our commitment to provide customers with increased convenience and an accessible, knowledgeable sales staff," commented Verizon Wireless store manager Chris Rataic. "Demand for our wireless services continues to grow as customers leverage the value of our America's Choice® Select plans with unlimited TXT, Picture, Video and Instant Messaging to anyone on any network in the United States."

Rataic also manages the Verizon Wireless kiosk location in the Buckland Hills Mall. A stand-alone Verizon Wireless Communications Store is located at 9 Buckland Road (South Windsor) across from the mall and a fourth Manchester-area store is located inside Circuit City at 230 Hale Road.

Verizon Wireless has invested more than $37 billion in the last seven years — $5 billion on average every year since the company was formed — to increase the coverage and capacity of its national network and to add new services. In 2006 the company completed nearly $318 million in New England network enhancements — thus increasing the company's regional network investment to more than $1.8 billion since 2000.
