CINCINNATI, Dec. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Just in time to assist busy holiday shoppers, AT&T* today announced the opening of a high-tech retail store in the Kenwood Towne Centre in Cincinnati. The new store offers a unique way for customers to interact with and shop for a wide array of communications and entertainment services including a hands-on demonstration area to engage customers and provide a "try before you buy" service experience.
"This new AT&T store is a welcome addition to Cincinnati and brings even more options for consumers," said State Senator Shannon Jones. "AT&T's investment in opening new retail stores will continue southwest Ohio's reputation as a strong location for business."
The new store showcases a wide range of products and services, and includes a new tablet and emerging-devices "wall" to display the latest connected gadgets. The latest in mobile devices are displayed, such as the Samsung Galaxy S™ II, the Samsung Galaxy S™ II Skyrocket™, the HTC Vivid™, and the Motorola Atrix™ 2.

"This investment showcase our overall commitment to the Cincinnati area," said Larry Evans, vice president and general manager, AT&T Ohio and Western Pennsylvania. "In fact, AT&T has invested more than $200 million in our Ohio wireless and wireline networks this year."
AT&T Ohio president Tom Pelto agreed, adding, "Our goal is to help people choose the best mix of products and services that meet their individual needs, and to invest in our local wireless network so they can stay connected everywhere they live and work."
