ORANGEBURG, NY — Verizon Wireless has expanded its retail presence with the addition of a new store within BJ’s Wholesale Club in Pelham Manor. With the addition of the Verizon Wireless kiosk, BJ’s customers now have easy access to the latest wireless phones, devices and accessories, plus a variety of service plans on the nation’s most reliable wireless network.

Located at 820-828 Pelham Parkway and open to residents with and without BJ’s Wholesale Club memberships, the new Verizon Wireless store at BJ’s is open Monday – Saturday, 9 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., and Sunday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.

“Today’s busy lifestyles require all of us to combine errands and shopping trips whenever possible,” said Store Manager Mike Bertot. “Our salespeople are the best in the industry and we look forward to offering BJ’s shoppers, and all area residents, top-notch wireless products and professional, personalized service in a new, more convenient location.”

BJ’s members and area residents will be able to take advantage of the same services available at all Verizon Wireless Communications Stores and can expect the same high-quality products and services they would receive in a standalone store. Verizon Wireless will be responsible for the operation and maintenance of BJ’s kiosk, including hiring, inventory and displays.

The new store offers consumers a broad range of services and equipment, including popular devices like the new global 3G BlackBerry® Tour™. BJ’s members and shoppers also will enjoy new service features like Verizon Wireless Friends & Family® which lets customers on eligible calling plans enjoy unlimited calling to up to 10 numbers on any network, anytime, anywhere in America without using plan minutes.

As the wireless customer loyalty leader over the past 18 quarters, Verizon Wireless offers customers many reasons to shop at its stores, kiosks and online. Verizon Wireless operates the nation’s largest and most reliable wireless voice and high-speed Mobile Broadband data network and offers quality products and services backed by its award-winning customer service. To increase the coverage and capacity of its premier nationwide network and to add new services, Verizon Wireless has invested more than $50 billion since it was formed in 2000.

The Pelham Manor kiosk is the eighth location to open in Westchester County. For a complete list of all Verizon Wireless Communications Store locations, visit www.verizonwireless.com/stores or call1-800-2 JOIN IN.
