First XFINITY Store in Southwest Michigan
Comcast today announced plans to open an XFINITY Store in Benton Charter Township at 1010 Fairplain Dr. in the late summer of 2017. The new 4,500-square-foot store, which will be the first in Southwest Michigan, will give visitors hands-on experience with 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 nearly 1.5 million WiFi hotspots in the region and 15 million across the country.
“The new store will give our employees the ability to demonstrate our latest products and services and educate Michiganders about how to use their range of features,” said John Crowley, Comcast’s Greater Chicago Region senior vice president. “In addition, the store has comfortable seating areas that 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 am pleased that Comcast has chosen to locate an XFINITY store in the Fairplain Plaza commercial district,” said Township Supervisor, Kevin D. White. “The location is in a vibrant retail area that is currently experiencing significant development. This store will give Comcast the ability to serve its valued customers throughout Benton Charter Township and the surrounding communities.”
The XFINITY Store will have around 15 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. The store will open later this year.
