A New Look in Blairsville

Thursday, November 29, 2018

Over the years, we’ve all heard about the decline of brick-and-mortar retail locations. Online retailers have taken the industry by storm, leaving skeletons of what used to be vibrant businesses in cities across the U.S. But, what about those of us who still prefer to walk into a store, talk one-on-one with a local representative and receive stellar customer service? Well, we have your answer.

For years, we have been a staple in the Blairsville, GA community, and now our retail store has a modern new look! On Nov. 16, our Blairsville location opened its doors to the public, highlighting a new Kinetic by Windstream store redesign concept to be implemented in our retail locations across the nation.

People from all over the city gathered to get a firsthand look at the at the newly redesigned Kinetic by Windstream store. With new cutting-edge features, the store includes interactive displays highlighting community information, entertainment, Internet, and small business services.

As part of the grand reopening, we donated $1,000 in nonperishable food items to the Feed the Hungry program located at First Baptist Church of Blairsville. The Blairsville Chamber of Commerce even held a special ribbon-cutting ceremony, while guests enjoyed crafts, snacks, and mini-sandwiches from a local favorite, The Sawmill Place.

Our commitment to playing active roles in the communities in which we live and serve runs deep. We are consistently working to ensure that the Blairsville community can experience broadband speeds up to 100 Mbps. That success depends on the hard work and dedication of nearly 1,200 Georgia team members. We will continue to invest in Blairsville and our other Kinetic communities nationwide, driving faster connections and network speeds to each of our customers and business partners.
