Shaw Communications has opened the doors on a 1,900-square-foot retail store at Pine Centre in Prince George and, next week, Shaw will open a 1,882-square-foot location at Park Royal in West Vancouver (2002 Park Royal S).
As the latest additions to Shaw’s retail footprint, the new stores give holiday shoppers a space to visit to learn more about Shaw’s full product lineup — either from a retail expert or through one of the many interactive demonstration walls and digital display stations. These spacious new stores allow shoppers to explore new products in compliance with British Columbia’s COVID-19 safety protocols.
“The new retail stores in Prince George and West Vancouver are visually stunning, informative and technology-rich environments that will delight our customers,” said Paul Deverell, President, Consumer, Shaw Communications, in a news release. “We’ve designed the stores with our customers’ needs and comfort in mind. Each store provides customers with a safe and interactive shopping experience that allows them to check out our innovative home and mobile products for themselves. At every store, our knowledgeable advisors help customers understand the benefits of bundling together our connectivity and entertainment services in a way that best suits their needs and budget.”
Since launching Shaw Mobile in July 2020, Shaw has built or redesigned 23 new retail locations in B.C. and Alberta while observing public health measures designed to stop the spread of COVID-19.
Shaw has used local suppliers wherever possible, which has helped individual communities in their economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Shaw Communications is already an important part of the Prince George community and a significant local employer,” said Mayor Lyn Hall. “On behalf of council, I would like to congratulate Shaw on the opening of their new retail location in Prince George, and thank them for making this additional investment in our city, which will provide reliable jobs during these uncertain times. Such an investment also helps residents to keep up with the latest technology, which has a positive impact on economic development for both the city and region.”
