STREETSBORO, OH — Verizon Wireless has moved its Communications Store in Streetsboro to a new state-of-the-art location in Heritage Landing at 9529 State Route 14, next to Burger King and Steak’n Shake. The new store, opening tomorrow, will offer consumers and small business customers hands-on interaction with wireless voice, data, music and video services in a sleek, new full-service environment.     

To celebrate its latest “evolution” communications store in Streetsboro, Verizon Wireless is hosting a series of public events during the next few days.

  • Grand Opening Celebration
    Saturday, Oct. 6, from noon to 2 p.m.

    WONE-FM is holding a radio remote to kick off a month-long device drive to promote Verizon’s earth-friendly device recycling program. The recycling program supports its HopeLine® initiative that turns no-longer-used wireless phones into support for victims of domestic violence. The public is encouraged to bring unwanted phones or tablets from any provider to the store to recycle. And, if the phones and tablets have value, they’ll receive a Verizon Wireless gift card.
  • Donation to Family & Community Services, Inc.
    Saturday, Oct. 6, 12:15 p.m.

    Verizon Wireless will present a financial grant of $1,000 to the organization at the grand opening. The grant will help support Family & Community Services, Inc.’s program, “Safer Futures,” whose mission is to create safer futures to lessen the scope of domestic violence in Portage County. In addition, for every phone or tablet recycled at the store during the month-long drive, an second donation will be made to Family & Community Services, Inc.
  • Ribbon Cutting Ceremony with Mayor Glenn M. Broska
    Tuesday, Oct. 9, at 10 a.m. 

    Mayor Glenn Broska and other city officials will welcome the new store to the community with a ribbon cutting ceremony.

Visitors to the new Verizon Wireless Communications Store can sample a wide array of fully-activated new basic phones, smartphones, tablets and other devices for a total wireless experience on the nation’s largest 4G LTE network and largest, most reliable 3G network.

“Our new, green store in Streetsboro provides plenty of space for both shopping and customer service, in keeping with our commitment to deliver innovative voice and data plans, exciting new devices and services and the best possible wireless experience,” said Thad Rosenberry, district manager for retail sales–Ohio/Pennsylvania/West Virginia Region, Verizon Wireless.
