Visitors to get hands-on demos of XFINITY’s innovative TV, High-Speed Internet and Voice services, as well as XFINITY Home, Comcast’s home security and automation platform
Comcast today announced that it plans to open an XFINITY Store in Granger, IN. To be located at 7115 Heritage Square Dr. in the Heritage Square Shopping Center, the new 4,700-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 Stream, which allows customers to watch live TV anywhere at home over WiFi; watch up to 200 live channels outside their homes; stream up to 40,000 hours of On Demand content; and download movies and TV shows, to XFINITY WiFi, which allows customers to search for locations of the network’s 16 million hotspots 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 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.
The XFINITY Store will have around 12 full- and part-time employees. Store hours will be Mondays through Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sundays from 12 to 5 p.m. Comcast representatives anticipate the store will open in mid-2017.
“I’m pleased that Comcast has chosen Granger for its first Michiana XFINITY Store,” Andrew Kostielney, president, St Joseph County Board of Commissioners. “The location is in a dynamic area with a significant amount of retail traffic and it will serve thousands of Hoosiers in the Granger area and the surrounding communities.”
