HALIFAX, June 18, 2012 /CNW/ - Shortly after unveiling its new, modern
brand identity, Eastlink has officially opened the doors to the first
four of several new and updated retail locations slated for Nova Scotia
and Prince Edward Island.
Phase one of the company's new retail environment includes new locations
in Bedford (Sunnyside Mall and Hemlock Square), Truro (Truro Mall) and
a major renovation to its MicMac Mall location in Dartmouth.
"The expansion of our retail footprint reflects Eastlink's continued
growth as one of the industry's leading telecommunications providers,"
says Lee Bragg, CEO Eastlink. "We're more focused than ever on
providing the best customer experience possible. As we make the foray
into the wireless market, the addition of these new locations makes
Eastlink even more accessible."
The new retail environment is designed to promote a warm, inviting and
family-friendly atmosphere. Parents of young children can experience
Eastlink's video entertainment services in the comfort of a home
theatre-like setting, while the little ones enjoy a kid zone designed
with them in mind.
In addition to the new look, Eastlink's new locations offer a larger,
more open concept to facilitate a highly interactive, hands-on
experience of all the company's products and services, which will soon
include Eastlink's much anticipated wireless products later this year.
"When we designed the new retail environment we did so with the
objective of inviting our customers to experience the full range of
what we have to offer like OnDemand, HD, 3D and Whole Home DVR, and
have fun doing it," says Bragg.
"Soon, our customers will be able to enjoy that same experience with our
wireless products, which we expect will be very popular bundled with
our existing products and services."
Eastlink's knowledgeable and professional retail staff is equipped with
the tools to manage all customer needs and inquiries from hands-on
product demonstrations to traditional account services.
"That means every retail team member is capable of introducing our
customers to the latest video entertainment and communications
products, finalizing sales, processing billing transactions, and
managing equipment upgrades and pickups," explains Bragg.
Eastlink is busy finalizing the next round of new retail store openings,
which will further grow our retail footprint in Nova Scotia and PEI.
Stay tuned in the weeks and months ahead for more details on locations.
