DENVER, CO — Verizon Wireless once again breaks new ground in wireless retail today with the opening of its second "evolution" Communications Store in the Denver-metro area. The store is the next evolution in the wireless retail experience, offering consumers hands-on interaction with wireless voice, data, music, and video services in a sleek, new full-service environment. The new store is located at 8461 S. Yosemite Street in Lone Tree. Last November, Verizon Wireless opened its first evolution store in Colorado at 2073 S. Colorado Blvd., on the northwest corner of Colorado Blvd. and Evans Ave.

About the store

  • Interactive "demo zone" guided by knowledgeable staff
  • Integrated systems and operational enhancements designed to streamline the sales process and increase customer satisfaction
  • Check-in kiosk enables customers to sign in on arrival and stay informed via monitors that track their place in the queue for service
  • Roomy and easy to locate technical assistance and customer support areas with interactive displays

"Our new 4,000 square-foot Park Meadows store provides plenty of space for both shopping and customer service, in keeping with our commitment to deliver innovative voice and data plans, exciting new devices and services, and the best possible wireless experience," said Melanie Braidich, regional president of Verizon Wireless.

Verizon Wireless recently moved the industry forward with the introduction of new Nationwide Unlimited Anytime Minutes Plans. The plans give customers all their calls — anytime to anyone in the U.S., including landline phones — at a flat rate for $99.99 monthly access. In addition, BroadbandAccess plans offer customers two choices for Internet browsing, e-mail access, and downloading files. The new BroadbandAccess plans offer customers monthly data plan options of 50 Megabytes (MB) or 5 Gigabytes (GB) (5,120 MB).

About the investment
Verizon Wireless has invested more than $700 million in Colorado and nearly $44 billion nationally since it was formed — $5.5 billion on average every year — to increase the coverage and capacity of its national network and to add new services.
