Comcast announced plans to open an Xfinity Store in Rockford this summer, at 6244 Mulford Village Drive.
Comcast said they will transfer employees from the existing service center at 4450 Kishwaukee Street to the new store when it opens.
The Kishwaukee Street location will continue to house Comcast’s technical operations.
The new store will offer cable TV, Internet service, Xfinity Mobile phone service, and the Xfinity Home security service.
“Our goal is to give customers an awesome experience,” said John Crowley, Comcast’s Greater Chicago Region senior vice president. “The stores give our employees the ability to demonstrate the latest Xfinity products and services and educate customers about all of their features and benefits. The store will have comfortable seating, so customers can settle in and experience our products and services as though they’re in their own living rooms.”
“Comcast has had a major presence in Rockford for many years. We’re pleased the company is adding to it with a new Xfinity Store,” said Rockford Mayor Tom McNamara. “The addition of the Xfinity Store will add to the retail mix in the Millennium Market Center and will attract customers from several nearby Northwest Illinois communities.”
The store will have 15 full and part time employees and will be open Mondays through Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
