NORWICH – The Cellular Connection, a subsidiary of Verizon Wireless, celebrated its unveiling to the Norwich community on Friday with a ribbon cutting ceremony and open house to show off its newly constructed home on State route 12, just south of the city.
“Here at The Cellular Connection, we pride ourselves on our personalized customer service, where exceeding all of your expectations is our highest priority,” stated Keith Harendza, The Cellular Connection store manager. “Whether you need a basic phone, a tablet, internet, TV or the latest and greatest of everything, we’ve got you covered. We live right here in this community with you, and that is why nothing is more important to us than the customers who visit us and community you live in.”
As part of its pledge to community support, The Cellular Connection shares profits with a number of local charitable organizations, including a $500 contribution the Norwich Family YMCA.
