In response to the growing demand for the company's voice and data products and services, Verizon Wireless will celebrate the grand opening of its newest Communications Store in Monmouth County this weekend (November 7, 2009).

The new 3,300 square-foot store, located at 1334 Laurel Avenue in Sea Girt, at the corner of Route 35 North, is the eighth Verizon Wireless store in Monmouth County and incorporates a new interactive retail design in a sleek, full-service environment. Store hours are Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. The store phone number is 732-449-4028.

Store Manager Richard Pizzo is inviting local residents to stop by the store, join in the festivities and experience everything the new store has to offer.

The celebration, which runs from noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday, November 7, will feature special in-store promotions, an airbrush tattoo artist, refreshments and a live WFAN radio remote. Community members are invited to bring the family and enter to win a Family 4-Pack of tickets to attend the Giants Kids Clinic at Giants Stadium on November 21, 2009. Customers who activate new lines of service between now and January 6, 2010, also can choose to receive a free LG 5500 cell phone or a free wireless modem with each two-year service agreement.

"We want to encourage customers to stop in and take full advantage of our interactive retail design to experience the latest wireless voice, data, music and video services first-hand," said Pizzo. "We have a lot of fun activities planned for the day but, more importantly, we want our customers to know that our staff is here everyday to help them choose a product that meets their needs and select a price plan that fits their lifestyle. Our sales team and technical staff work one-on-one with customers to help them get the most value for the least cost."

The new store offers consumers a broad range of services and equipment including popular devices like the DROID by Motorola, the world's first smartphone with Android™ 2.0 that goes on sale November 6, and 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.

In addition, Friends & Family for Business and Verizon Wireless business solutions, like unlimited e-mail and Web browsing plans, now are more convenient for local business people.
