My Wireless opens 20th store with new location
Steamboat Springs With the opening of its newest hometown store on 675 S. Lincoln Ave., Steamboat Springs-based My Wireless has 20 stores spanning three states: Colorado, New Mexico and Wyoming. My Wireless, which started with one Grand Junction store and five employees in 2004, has since added 19 locations and 75 employees, the company stated in a news release.
It has been designated a Verizon Wireless Premium Retailer. This is Verizon's highest honor for retail partners and means that My Wireless meets or exceeds all of Verizon's highest national standards in terms of overall professionalism and customer service.
The company has planned a "Summer of Love" ad campaign, according to the news release. The theme will be "Peace, Love & My Wireless." The company also plans to add new vehicles to its fleet - from Vincent Van Gogh on an old U-Haul, Dogs Playing Poker on a 1940 Panel Van, to a Steamboat scene by local artist Greg Effinger on a 1991 Hummer H-1. This summer, it will bring out the "Fifth Beetle," a Volkswagen bug.
