Alltel Store In Fond Du Lac, Wisconsin, Gets A New Look, New Name

October 4, 2009

WHAT:
Workers will be removing Alltel store signage in Fond du Lac and will be unveiling a new brand name—Verizon Wireless.

OVERVIEW:
Over the next few weeks, a number of changes will be taking place as Verizon Wireless continues its integration with Alltel in Fond du Lac. The Alltel brand name will be disappearing in Fond du Lac as the former Alltel store is remodeled and re-branded as Verizon Wireless. Verizon Wireless phones, services and merchandising also will replace Alltel products.

In addition, Alltel customers in Fond du Lac will officially become Verizon Wireless customers as the company completes its billing conversion in mid-October. This means a Verizon Wireless bill soon will be arriving in the mail for Alltel customers, and they also will be able to purchase Verizon Wireless’ products and services, as well as conduct transactions at thousands of Verizon Wireless stores across the country.
