New customer-focused Southwest Side store showcases Xfinity’s innovative technology
June 9, 2021 – Comcast today announced that a new Xfinity Store is set to open at 3145 S. Ashland Ave. in Chicago’s McKinley Park neighborhood in the Riverside Square shopping center. The nearly 3,200-square-foot store, which is slated to open late this summer, will be designed entirely around the needs of customers, providing them with the opportunity to explore, learn about and interact directly with Xfinity’s products and services, ranging 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 also features iPads and other mobile devices visitors can use to test Xfinity’s mobile apps, which include:
- Xfinity Stream, which allows customers to watch live TV anywhere at home over WiFi, watch more than 200 live channels outside their home, stream thousands of On Demand choices on-the-go and download movies and TV shows;
- Xfinity Hotspots, which allows customers to search for the network’s more than 20 million hotspots across the country and nearly 1.9 million in the region;
- Xfinity, which allows high-speed Internet customers to personalize and control their home WiFi experience; and
- My Account, which allows customers to view their bills, make payments, troubleshoot service issues and more.
“Our goal is to give customers an awesome experience,” said John Crowley, Comcast’s Greater Chicago Region Senior Vice President. “The stores give our employees the ability to demonstrate the latest Xfinity products and services and educate customers about all of their features and benefits.”
“We’re pleased to welcome the Xfinity Store to McKinley Park,” said Chicago 12th Ward Alderman, George A. Cardenas. “The store will add to the retail mix along Ashland Avenue and help attract even more visitors from in and around the 12th Ward to the area.”
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 new store, which will be open Mondays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., will become part of a network of retail, warehouse, operations and engineering facilities Comcast operates in Chicago, including additional Xfinity Stores at 1322 E. 53rd St. in the city’s Hyde Park neighborhood and at 11702 S. Marshfield, serving the Morgan Park and West Pullman neighborhoods. For more information about Xfinity products, services and retail stores, visit www.xfinity.com or call 1-(800)-XFINITY.
