New customer-focused store showcases Xfinity’s innovative technology
November 22, 2019 – Today, Comcast announced that a new Xfinity Store is slated to open early next year in Chicago’s Uptown neighborhood at 4407 N. Clarendon Ave in the retail portion of the Eight Eleven Uptown development. The store is designed entirely around the needs of customers, providing them with the opportunity to explore, learn about and interact directly with the latest Xfinity services or get help if they need it.
The store will feature contemporary displays designed to give visitors hands-on experience with Xfinity’s range of products and services, from the company’s mobile phone service, Xfinity Mobile, high-speed Internet and cable TV, to its home security and automation platform, Xfinity Home. The store will also feature iPads and other mobile devices visitors can use to explore Xfinity’s mobile apps. Apps range from: Xfinity Stream, which allows customers to watch live TV anywhere at home over WiFi, watch more than 200 live channels outside their home, stream more than 70,000 On Demand choices on-the-go, download movies and TV shows; and Xfinity WiFi, which allows customers to search for locations of the network’s more than 19 million hotspots across the country and nearly 1.8 million in the region; to xFi, which allows high-speed Internet customers to personalize and control their home WiFi experience.
“We want customers to come in and experience our services firsthand to get a sense of their depth and breadth,” said John Crowley, Comcast’s Greater Chicago Region senior vice president. “Our employees are trained experts and can educate customers about all of their features.”
Along with product and service demos, customers will be able to pay bills, pick up and return equipment and get assistance from trained, knowledgeable technology and service consultants.
“I’m pleased to welcome the Xfinity Store to Uptown,” said Chicago 46th Ward Alderman James Cappleman. “Uptown is a vibrant and diverse community, and the Xfinity Store will provide much needed services to area residents.”
The new store will be open Mondays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sundays from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. For more information about Xfinity products, services and retail stores, call 1-(800)-XFINITY or visit www.xfinity.com.
