Consumer Cellular Launches First Brick-And-Mortar Stores

The two stores will be located in The Villages, the largest single-site residential real estate development in the US.

Consumer Cellular has announced it is launching its first brick-and-mortar stores in The Villages, a collection of mega-community retirement neighborhoods in the heart of Florida. The Villages is an active community of 125,000 residents, adding 4,000 residents each year.

The retail stores will be located in two different neighborhoods at The Villages: Lake Sumter Landing (1095 Canal Street) and Brownwood Paddock Square (92773 Brownwood Blvd).

A grand opening will begin with a ribbon cutting on November 11th at 10 am at the Lake Sumter Landing location and the celebration will continue through the weekend at both locations with promotional giveaways and special offers.

“Opening our first brick-and-mortar locations is a huge milestone for us. We can’t imagine a better location to launch than The Villages,” said Ed Evans, Consumer Cellular CEO. “Opening two retail locations in the largest active retirement neighborhood in the country underscores our longstanding commitment to serve the 50+ community.”

The new locations will include the full Consumer Cellular offerings, from plans, phones, and award-winning customer support. The entire phone and device lineup will be on display for customers to interact with inside the stores, and all plans, including those for both AARP and non-AARP members, will be available. Technical support will be available during all hours.

The grand opening celebrations for the stores will include media partnerships with The Villages’ own radio station, WLVG, as well as the community’s daily newspaper, The Village Daily Sun. As part of the celebration, WLVG will conduct a live remote broadcast from each store location. Out in the town squares, the radio “street team” will be doing live interviews with local residents and visitors, and conducting additional giveaways.

In celebration of the new stores, an in-store offer of up to $100 off select phones from November 11-13th will be available. Residents at The Villages will also be able to take advantage of Consumer Cellular’s new exclusive plan for AARP members: two lines of unlimited talk, text, and data for just $55/month ($27.50 a line).
