Cellular Sales opens store; Verizon Wireless retailer continues growth

Cellular Sales, the largest independent Verizon Wireless retailer by volume, announced expansion in Illinois with a new Huntley store. Within the next year, the Huntley store is expected to add new jobs in the local community.

The store, at 47 Regency Parkway, opened to customers Sept. 7. This is Cellular Sales’ first store in Huntley, but its 14th store in Illinois.

“As a company, we find it important to serve each of our customers in a hands-on way,” Cellular Sales regional director Derek Born said. “By opening our first store in the Huntley area, we have the opportunity to connect and support even more customers face-to-face.”

The store is hoping to expand by hiring at least a dozen additional team members to its current team of eight employees.

Cellular Sales’ innovative approach to customer service has allowed the company to grow significantly through its 25 years. It has been named to Inc. Magazine’s 5000 list of the fastest-growing companies nine of the past 10 years, achieving Hall of Fame status.

Headquartered in Knoxville, Tennessee, Cellular Sales was founded in 1993. The company employs 7,200 people and operates more than 700 stores nationwide across 41 states.

Before selling on their own, Cellular Sales’ recruits are trained for four to six weeks with senior sales representatives, giving them the best possible tools for success.

Team members are encouraged to view themselves as entrepreneurs with the support of an established, successful company backing them up.

Not only does the company want to generate loyal employees, but it seeks to provide valuable training and support for each team members’ personal and professional development.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics expects demand for retail sales jobs to grow over the next decade, and sales experience will be valuable.

“We’re looking forward to getting the chance to work with more of our Illinois residents,” Cellular Sales regional director Rodney Hoffman said. “The hard work of each team member here is something we are incredibly proud of and something we know we will find in Huntley.”

Cellular Sales seeks to hire individuals with a passion for customer service to work at its Regency Parkway store in Huntley.

Those interested in applying for jobs at the Huntley location may contact Cellular Sales recruiter Kevin Austin at 317-800-5665 or kevin.austin@cellularsales.com.
