MIDDLETOWN, DE — In response to growing demand for the company's voice and data products and services, Verizon Wireless has opened a new Communications Store in Middletown. 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 in Middletown Commons at 580 W. Main Street, the store is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m. to 6 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."
The new 2,242-square-foot store is Verizon Wireless' 10th retail location in Delaware. Store Manager Jeff Crockett will oversee a staff of 10 full-time employees. 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.
