PITTSBURGH, April 1, 2014 –Travelers have more ways to stay connected thanks to specialty retailer Tech Interaction and its 888 square feet of space devoted to the latest smart phones, tablets and accessories. An exclusive partnership with Verizon by GoWireless brings more options for fliers at the AIRMALL at Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT). Passengers now have the ability to activate and upgrade their Verizon Wireless service while they are at the airport.
“Quality, selection and service are hallmarks of the shopping experience at the AIRMALL,” says Jay Kruisselbrink, vice president of development for AIRMALL USA. “Travelers can maximize their time by improving their mobile experience on the spot. What better way to spend your wait time than trying out the latest devices – headphones to tablets, and being able to upgrade your service or plug in!”
Located in the airport’s Center Core, near Concourse D, Tech Interaction first opened its doors in the AIRMALL at PIT in 2004. The company now operates 43 stores in 20 major U.S. airports. Pittsburgh is the first location to introduce the expanded service. “This is an exciting time for our company and our customers,” says Iris Goldschmidt, president and CEO of parent company APW Holdings, LLC. “It’s what they’ve been asking for, and we’re delighted to now be able to offer a streamlined activation process that takes on average under 15 minutes.
“Tech and travel go hand-in-hand,” she adds, “and Tech Interaction is making the connection seamless for AIRMALL customers.”
