AT&T debuted a new 5,000 square foot entertainment-focused retail store in Mount Pleasant with a ribbon cutting ceremony. Mount Pleasant officials, Business Development and Mount Pleasant Chamber of Commerce representatives attended the grand opening at 1700 Shoremeade Road.

“It’s great to have this new space in Mount Pleasant where you can walk right in and quickly learn about AT&T’s many tools and services that benefit our residents, businesses and tourists,” said Mount Pleasant Mayor William Haynie. “Improving the livability of our community is very important to us, and we’re excited that AT&T shares in our enthusiasm about the city.”

“We’re delighted to open this new entertainment-focused retail store in Mount Pleasant,” said Marvy Moore, AT&T vice president and general manager of the Georgia and South Carolina region. “The Mount Pleasant store is designed for an evolution in connected entertainment, and customers will be able to interact with content across many different screens.”

The new store design reflects the changing ways customers use their mobile devices for entertainment. Last year alone, video traffic on the AT&T network grew over 75 percent. The new store allows customers to interact with content across many different screens and find their best video, internet and wireless options.

“Congratulations to AT&T on the opening of their new store format,” said Mount Pleasant Business Development Manager John Holladay. “We are thrilled to see another member of our business community choose Mount Pleasant. We remain committed to advancing Mount Pleasant’s quality of life by fostering an economic environment that is vibrant and favorable to job creation.”

Some key features of the new store format are:

Entertainment, everywhere. Our new stores illustrate the intersection of content and connection. We train our reps to show how services, like DIRECTV and DIRECTV NOW and products can add value to your connected life.

Smartphones and more. We’ve moved the phones off the walls to the center of the store to make it easier to compare and choose what’s best for you. We also have focus areas to show the most popular brands that have products like VR glasses, tablets or smartwatches that work with your smartphone. We expanded our lineup of accessories, and we’ve made them easier to find.

A comfortable experience. We’ve designed these stores for you to have a personal connection with our reps and services. And we know selecting a phone, plan and sometimes adding TV and home broadband to your list takes longer than grabbing a shirt off the rack. So, we added comfortable areas where you and our reps can work together.

The new store in Mt. Pleasant is located at 1700 Shoremeade Rd.  The hours of operation are: 9 a.m. – 8 p.m., Monday through Saturday and 12 p.m. – 6 p.m. on Sunday. This unique store joins our lineup of more than 5,300 AT&T owned and authorized retail stores nationwide.
