Store Offers Hands-On, Interactive Retail Experience To Help Customers Choose Wireless Devices, Plans, Apps, Content and Accessories That Best Meet Their Individual Needs

Clarksdale, Miss. (March 22, 2013) – C Spire Wireless, the only wireless provider in the U.S. that offers consumers and businesses a suite of personalized wireless services, today announced the grand reopening of its newly remodeled 3,000 square foot prototype retail store in Clarksdale.

The new, state-of-the-art store, located at 1005 South State Street, features C Spire’s latest wireless devices, feature phones, smartphones and accessories as well as the company’s industry-leading personalization program, which gives customers apps and content that fit who they are, services that anticipate their needs and rewards for using their phone in new ways.

The store officially opens today with an 11:30 a.m. ribbon-cutting, reception and celebration featuring C Spire executives, elected officials and local business and community leaders in Clarksdale and Coahoma County. Food, prizes and giveaways will also be a part of the grand reopening.

The Clarksdale store has a state-of-the-art, hands-on design to engage customers and provides a “try before you buy” personalized service experience, according to Jeff Bufkin, market manager for C Spire. Bufkin and his 8-member staff are trained to assist consumer and business customers with individual purchasing decisions, personalized customer service and technical support. Regular store hours of operation are Monday through Saturday 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

“Our newly remodeled retail location in Clarksdale will enhance our ability to provide our customers with the best individual, personalized service in the industry,” said Bryan Templeton, regional manager of Retail Operations for C Spire Wireless. “We’re proud of our store, but we’re even more excited about continuing to contribute to the economic development of Clarksdale and Coahoma County.”

Templeton said the new retail location builds on C Spire’s significant capital and network investments in Clarksdale and Coahoma County. C Spire has invested more than $2.3 million since 2008 to expand its network and give Clarksdale and Coahoma County businesses and consumers the best personalized wireless experience available.

“C Spire’s expansion in Clarksdale will give us the opportunity to offer even more area residents and businesses the latest wireless devices, access to thousands of great apps and content, easy and affordable voice and data plans without overages and the best next-generation network available,” Templeton said. “We’re dedicated to offering unique and game-changing products and services that adapt to customers, understand who they area and are designed just for them.”

Local business leaders praised the company’s decision to select Clarksdale as one of the first markets for its new prototype retail store design. “C Spire’s efforts to expand its retail operations and enhance wireless coverage in Clarksdale will greatly benefit the communities in this region,” said Ron Hudson, executive director of the Clarksdale-Coahoma County Chamber of Commerce and Industrial Foundation.

“Continued retail expansion and the provision of high-speed wireless data and the services and applications it supports are becoming increasingly important to both consumers and business users,” Hudson said. “We appreciate the work that C Spire is doing to extend the benefits of expanded broadband access to consumers and businesses who rely heavily on wireless technology for work and entertainment.”
