ORANGEBURG, NY — Verizon Wireless, builder and operator of the nation's most reliable voice and data network, today announced the opening of a new authorized retail outlet in Rockland County to make shopping for the company's wireless voice and data products more convenient for local residents and businesses. Wireless Depot, located at 22 North Main Street in New City, near the Rockland County Courthouse, now offers a wide variety of wireless phones, accessories and service from Verizon Wireless.

Wireless Depot, owned by Ara Kradjian, has served as a Verizon Wireless authorized retailer for the past two years, and now has 10 retail locations throughout the New York Metro region. The new store's hours are Monday through Friday, 10:00 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Customers may activate Verizon Wireless service at Wireless Depot and shop for the latest in wireless technology including V CAST service, which brings TV, music and other multimedia services to wireless phones, and VZ Navigator(SM) which provides audible turn-by-turn directions and real-time traffic information over the company's high-speed wireless network.

Verizon Wireless authorized retailers receive extensive training, as well as merchandising support and competitive commissions, after successfully completing a highly selective qualification process. Authorized retailers play a key role in the company's retail sales distribution strategy which includes 2,400 company-owned and operated Verizon Wireless Communications Stores nationwide.

Verizon Wireless is the only major carrier to offer a 30-day test drive of its network. If at any point during the 30-day Test Drive customers are not satisfied with their experience and take their number to another wireless carrier, Verizon Wireless will refund their money for their voice calls, equipment, activation fee and taxes, as well as release them from their contract without an early termination fee when they return their phone within the Test Drive period.

Currently the company is looking for bilingual English- and Spanish-speaking entrepreneurs interested in joining the Verizon Wireless authorized agent team in New York and Northern New Jersey neighborhoods with large Spanish-speaking populations. For more information about becoming an exclusive Verizon Wireless authorized retailer send an e-mail to NewAgents@verizonwireless.com.
