Regional Manager Alan Hon is excited for the newest TCC location, 1205 N. Second St.
Hon said TCC is the largest premium retailer for Verizon and Dish Network in the country. He manages nine stores and the company has 820 points of distribution throughout the country. Moorehead Communications, which operates the TCC stores, purchased the other Verizon store location in July 2010.
Since then, Hon said the community has been very receptive to the initial store, prompting them to open this new location in October next to the Clinton Jewel-Osco. A grand opening was held approximately two weeks ago.
“With two locations we can provide more convenient service to both of those areas,” Hon said.
The Clinton community has responded favorably to the new store, Hon said. He feels that Clinton almost has two separate areas and the two locations allows them to better serve both of them.
Hon encourages people to visit either location for the newest cell phones, home phone service, internet and Dish network. He said since electronic stores can no longer sell Verizon products, he feels TCC has a chance to better serve the community.
“The difference between us and a standard Verizon store is more that our whole focus is providing the best customer experience. So we actually take time to educate people on their phones,” Hon said. “It’s completely different than going to other retailers because our employees focus on providing the best customer experience.”
