AT&T unveiled its newly expanded San Rafael store at 835 4th Street last week. The retail space will serve as an outlet for the company’s cell phone and television products.
The five-month project doubled the store’s size and meant hiring eight new employees, according to local AT&T officials.
“I thank AT&T for investing in San Rafael and continuing to deliver innovation to Marin County,” said San Rafael Mayor Gary Phillips, who performed the ceremonial ribbon cutting. “AT&T’s commitment to leading wireless technologies, network enhancements and first-rate retail service has enabled them to create local jobs and continue bolstering the San Rafael economy.”
We’re committed to investing in San Rafael,” said Rhuenette Alums, AT&T’s External Affairs Director for San Rafael. “In addition to providing cutting-edge innovation and best-in-class wireless service, we’re working every day to foster education, bridge the digital divide and enable San Rafael residents to stay connected.”
The new store is a showcase for AT&T U-verse TV, AT&T’s digital IP television service that is now expanding in Northern California.
“We think San Rafael residents are going to love the U-verse experience, and they are going to really enjoy shopping, learning and buying in this newly remodeled store,” said Terry Stenzel, AT&T’s vice president and general manager for Northern California and Northern Nevada. “Nothing compares to the experience our customers get from test-driving all of AT&T’s technology in one convenient location. We are focused on revolutionizing our customers' in-store experience, and that begins with an accessible location, convenient layout and a knowledgeable staff that educates customers and helps them get the products and services that best meet their individual needs."
At the grand opening event, AT&T showcased some of its emerging devices as well as the latest tablets and smartphones. There is another local AT&T store at the Terra Linda Shopping Center.
