AUBURN, NY — Verizon Wireless is moving its Finger Lakes Mall retail store to a new, larger location. The new 3,300-square-foot store, located at 298 Grant Avenue, will employ 14 people and will feature the company’s new Evolution open floor plan design, to better showcase the latest devices, accessories and more, and to provide customers with the best hands-on experience in wireless.

"The new Evolution store design focuses on giving our customers a hands-on experience with our products and services," said Scott Langley, director of Communication Stores for Verizon Wireless’ Upstate New York Region. “It’s also designed to be ever-adaptable, continuing to change as new technologies and innovative solutions are introduced. Our new layout allows customers to discover and explore their options by inviting them to spend time with the products and services to find the ones that best fit their needs.”
