WARREN, MI — Verizon Wireless will open a new Communications Store at 5745 12 Mile Road on Friday, June 8. It is the company's first retail location in Warren, its sixth in Macomb County and its 73rd in Michigan.

The new 2,667-square-foot Verizon Wireless Communications Store offers an expansive array of wireless products and services, including the latest handsets, accessories and data services such as text, picture and video messaging; high-speed wireless Internet service and e-mail; and V CAST, which features music, games, and news, weather, sports and entertainment video clips.

"This new store reflects our ongoing commitment to provide our customers with increased convenience and an accessible, knowledgeable sales staff," said Greg Haller, president—Michigan/Indiana/Kentucky region, Verizon Wireless.

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 sound way.
