Make Your Next Destination the Boston Verizon Destination Store #VZWBuzz

Last weekend I was privy to attend the soft opening of the Verizon Destination Store in Boston.  It is the first of its kind in the North East and only one of four in the US and if you didn’t already get that in it’s name, a total destination. Located at 745 Boylston Street, this 8,000 square foot store houses so much more than cell phones.

I know what you’re thinking. Yes there are plenty of cellphone accessories and tablets and you probably think that store in the mall with the big Verizon logo is also a destination store. But it’s not, and it may not be a Verizon store as much as it is an “authorized Verizon retailer”. Shocking, I know. You’re gonna want to add this store to your itinerary if you’re ever in the Boston area.

Boasting over 2,000 skus, guests can touch and play with applications, gadgets and gear that complement all lifestyles.  Broken up into 7 different lifestyle zones, check them all out:

DEFINITELY take the time to speak with the many trained specialists on site to check your account. I was so pleasantly surprised, while contemplating a phone upgrade, spending way, way less than I expected and walking out of the store with so much more.  My deal? iPhone 6 64gb on the Edge Plan with a $25 monthly credit, found additional $20 credit off my monthly bill, tempered glass screen protector and beautiful new case and of course a selfie stick, all for $124. Wowzers!
