- V+ HD boxes which allow you to pause, play, rewind and record live TV meaning you never miss a thing
- plus the very latest mobile phones and offers – all under one roof
In addition, staff will be on hand to offer in-store demos and advice on money-saving options and how to add more value to existing Virgin Media packages.
Peter Taddeo, executive director of sales at Virgin Media, said: “We’re delighted to officially open our brand new store in Glasgow officially and establish a significant presence for Virgin Media in the city. The store has been designed to give customers the chance to try before they buy so they can get a great idea of the quality and range Virgin Media has to offer.”
Virgin Media’s in-store experts will also be on hand to guide customers through the products and give demonstrations of the V+ HD box and Virgin Media’s pioneering TV on demand service – featuring over 4,600 hours of fantastic shows including BBC iPlayer, high definition programmes, 500 movies, and much more all available to view whenever you want, in an instant. Customers will also be able to experience an exciting range of high spec mobiles handsets as well as mobile broadband.
Virgin Media will also be offering a host of deals in-store during its first few weeks* of opening, including a six months free broadband for customers signing up to selected media bundles.
The quad play provider plans to continue to increase its retail presence this year. In addition to opening stand-alone stores, Virgin Media is introducing a new retail experience – shops without walls - or ‘retail lite’ sites. These sites have been described as the UK’s most advanced customer facing outlets and will be set up in prominent locations within shopping centres across the country.
Virgin Media is also the first phone provider in the UK to offer new and existing customers free home phone to mobile calls. In a pioneering move designed to give its customers even better value, over four million Virgin Phone customers will be able to call Virgin Mobile customers without charge.
Virgin Media has now opened twenty nine new stores this year and with the opening of the Glasgow store has seen its number of retail stores increase to 78.
The new Glasgow Virgin Media Store is located at 151 Sauciehall Street, Glasgow, G2 3EW.
