In time for holiday shopping, Comcast held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the grand opening of its newest Xfinity Store in Middletown and marked the occasion with a donation to the Middlesex United Way. The 4,500-square-foot facility has a re-designed look and feel focused entirely around the needs of customers. Consumers will have the opportunity to explore, learn about and interact directly with the latest Xfinity products and services, including Xfinity Mobile.
Local officials and community leaders including State Senator Paul Doyle, Representative Joseph Serra, President and CEO of Middlesex United Way Kevin Wilhelm and President of Middlesex Chamber of Commerce Larry McHugh came out to celebrate the opening and tour the new store in Middletown.
“Middletown is a terrific place for businesses to invest and grow. I applaud Comcast on the opening of their new facility today, adding jobs to our region, and their continued investments in our community”, said State Senator Paul Doyle.
Larry McHugh, president of the Middlesex Chamber of Commerce, additionally congratulated Comcast and said, “The opening of the new Xfinity store is a great addition to Middletown. Comcast is an important provider of jobs in our region and this store will allow businesses and consumers to interact with the latest technology that drives innovation forward.”
Customers will receive personalized service from eight trained and knowledgeable Sales Consultants at the new, interactive Middletown Xfinity Store. The store is the sixth of its kind in Connecticut and is conveniently located within a popular shopping plaza at 814 Washington Street and is open Monday through Saturday from 10 am – 7 pm and on Sundays from 12 pm – 5 pm.
The store features flat screen HDTVs, interactive iPads, a comfortable seating area and informational displays where customers can learn more about Comcast’s products and services, including X1, Xfinity Home, Xfinity Mobile and Comcast’s suite of mobile apps.
