Prompted by expansion of Verizon subscribers throughout the region, Verizon Wireless has opened another retail store in Prescott at 3130 Willow Creek Road on the northeast side of the city.
Verizon is the second-largest wireless carrier in the United States. It had more than 120.3 million subscribers in 2020, said Samuel Johnson, sub-regional talent acquisition manager for Verizon.
However, he said it would be a while before 5G service reaches Yavapai County. Currently, 5G service has been primarily designed for large metropolitan areas and has not reached the smaller, more rural regions of the country.
The Willow Lake store has from eight to 10 fulltime employees. They will assist consumers who are interested in a full range and variety of mobile phones as well as home security systems.
Store hours are 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., Monday through Saturday; and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sundays.
