SAINT JOHN– Telus, one of Canada’s “big three” wireless service providers, has set up shop in uptown Saint John.
The company has opened a dealer store in Market Square, making it the only telecom provider with a location in the city centre since Bell Aliant closed their location earlier this year.
“There were no other telecom provider stores in the Uptown area to serve business and consumer customers, so TELUS leapt at the opportunity to fill this gap and serve this community,” said the company in a release.
The Telus Market Square dealer store will serve both business and consumer services and employ up to six people. The store is owned by Mark Worth and Tim Mahoney of Antigonish-based Highland Cellular.
This is Highland Cellular’s eighth Telus store and their first in New Brunswick. The company’s other stores are in Nova Scotia and Newfoundland and Labrador.
The new location will not just be a store, but a community meeting place as well, the company said.
“In keeping with Telus’s long-standing commitment to giving back to the Saint John community, local non-profits, community groups and small businesses will benefit from free access to the store’s 10-seat boardroom so they can hold important meetings in the audio-visual-enabled room,” read the release.
The new store offers mobile devices and service plans from both TELUS and Koodo brands; mobile accessories; Telus Business Connect® VoIP (voice over internet protocol) phone system solutions and Telus Connected Vehicle services for businesses.
