Jennifer Lopez and Verizon Wireless just cut the red tape on the very first Viva Movil store in Brooklyn. The inaugural flagship store is located at 162 Flatbush avenue, across from the Barclays Center. JLo was on hand at the even where she briefly spoke to a crowd gathered outside about what Viva Movil is all about. She then proceeded to cut the ribbon at the store entrance and take a tour inside.
The 2,000 square foot space features the latest Verizon handsets from Samsung, BlackBerry, Motorola, LG, Nokia, and more. But most importantly, all of these devices are powered-on working models, so that customers can come in and play with the handsets themselves before making a purchase.
Of course, Viva Movil’s staff are all bilingual and ready to assist customers in both Spanish or English. As a matter of fact, the store is designed to cater to the Spanish speaking community in Brooklyn. It’s also designed to be family friendly – to that effect, it has a special kids zone setup where kids can play with Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablets loaded with kid friendly apps, while their parents shop.
And to celebrate the grand opening, the store is offering an exclusive deal where anyone who activates a prepaid $60 or $70 smartphone plan before September 30th, will receive a one-time, 1GB data allowance above and beyond the selected plan.
Viva Movil will be opening stores in other locations, including Miami and Los Angeles.
