Mayor Emmett Pugh, local Chamber of Commerce officials, and Suddenlink staff this week cut a ceremonial ribbon to celebrate the opening of Suddenlink’s new retail store in Beckley, W. Va., at 124 Beckley Crossing. The store began serving customers April 8.
The new store offers a whole new experience for customers, with hands-on interactive displays demonstrating Suddenlink services. Counters no longer separate representatives from customers, allowing more personal interaction.
“We have a beautiful place now to showcase our Advanced Digital TV, high-speed Internet, phone and new home security services,” said Director of Government Relations Michael Kelemen. “It allows our customers an opportunity to get hands-on experience that we could not provide at the Dye Drive office.”
Since September 2011, Suddenlink has unveiled new or renovated stores in Payson, Ariz.; Arkadelphia, Jonesboro, El Dorado, Mountain Home, Pocahontas and Russellville, Ark.; Alexandria, Bastrop, Bossier City, DeRidder, Natchitoches and Ruston, La.; Blythe, Calif.; Greenwood, Miss.; Branson and St. Joseph, Mo.; Rocky Mount, N.C.; Stillwater, Okla.; Abilene, Bryan, Conroe, Little Elm, Lubbock, and Nacogdoches, Texas; and Point Pleasant, W.
