MARION, IL — Verizon Wireless customers looking for the best hands-on experience in wireless don’t need to look further.  Verizon Wireless announced today that it is rolling out its latest evolution store design at its Marion location, revealing an inviting new store layout to better showcase the latest devices, accessories and more.

Shoppers can check out the new evolution store design at 2902 West Deyoung Street (at the intersection of Skyline Drive).  The new layout offers consumers an open, inviting and interactive environment for discovery of Verizon Wireless’ devices, accessories and services to explore their wireless needs.  Customers enjoy a hands-on experience with the latest 4G LTE smartphones, diverse offering of 4G LTE tablets, unique smart accessories such as the MOTOACTV GPS fitness tracker, Jetpack 4G LTE TM mobile hotspots, netbooks, and so much more.  Shoppers can now visualize and experience how these devices will empower their day-to-day lives.

The open floor plan creates an educational environment where Verizon Wireless representatives provide a personalized sales experience complete with hands-on product demonstrations and device setup instructions.  Additionally, shoppers can participate in free in-store Wireless Workshops to learn how to maximize the potential of their wireless devices.

“Based on feedback from customers and employees, the Evolution store is designed to be ever-adaptable, continuing to change as new technologies and innovative products are introduced,” said Brendan Fallis, president – Kansas/Missouri/southern Illinois Region, Verizon Wireless. “Customers don’t always know what they are looking for when they enter a store, or what technology is available to them.  Our new layout allows customers to discover and explore their options by inviting them to spend time discovering the products and services that best fit their needs.”
