Comcast announced today that it plans to open an XFINITY Store in Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood. To be located at 3128 N. Ashland Ave., the new 5,200-square-foot space will be designed to give visitors real life, hands-on demonstrations of XFINITY’s range of products and services, from cable TV, high-speed Internet and home phone services, to the company’s home security and home automation platform, XFINITY Home. The store also will feature iPads and other mobile devices visitors can use to explore XFINITY’s Android and iOS apps. Apps range from XFINITY TV, which allows customers to watch live TV anywhere at home over WiFi, stream On Demand content and download movies and TV shows, to XFINITY WiFi, which allows customers to search for locations of the network’s 14 million hot spots across the country.
“The new store will give our employees the ability to demonstrate our latest products and services and educate visitors about how to use all of their great new features,” said John Crowley, Comcast’s Greater Chicago Region senior vice president. “In addition, the store will have comfortable seating areas that will allow visitors to settle in and experience XFINITY products and services as though they’re in their own homes.”
Along with product and service demos, customers will be able to pay bills, pick up and return equipment and get assistance from trained, knowledgeable sales and service consultants.
“I’m pleased to welcome the XFINITY Store to Lakeview,” said Ann M. Williams, State Representative, Illinois 11th District. “Lakeview is a thriving community and the Lincoln, Belmont and Ashland intersection is a dynamic retail destination. The XFINITY Store will be a great addition to our local retail mix and will attract visitors from surrounding neighborhoods.”
The XFINITY Store will have around 15 full- and part-time employees. Store hours will be Mondays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sundays from 12 to 5 p.m. The store will open later this year.
