MUSCATINE, IA — Verizon Wireless has relocated its Muscatine Communications Store to an expanded, state-of-the-art location at 2106 Park Ave. The new store offers consumers a high-tech and hands-on experience with wireless voice, data, music and video services.

"Wireless technology is ever evolving and consumers are more in-tune with the industry than ever before," said T.J. Fox, region president — Verizon Wireless. "This new store design puts customers in the driver's seat and allows them to experience our technology first hand — a shopping experience currently not offered by any other wireless provider."
