ABC triples retail space

Drop by the open house set for Saturday in their renovated location on Reid Street

ABC Communications CEO Bob Allen

ABC Communications has grown again. The company which was established in 1989 offering business telephone services, has grown to not only the best telecom business in Quesnel, but also as B.C.’s leading rural broadband internet service provider.

“We’ve been offering cell phone sales and service since 1994,” ABC Communications CEO Bob Allen said.

With the expansion next door to their existing outlet on Reid Street, ABC has tripled its retail space and the move has allowed the corporate headquarters to comfortably expand within the previous retail space.

“Separating corporate from retail better serves both aspects of the business,” Allen said.

The new retail space offers services on Telus and ABC products.

“The opening of the new retail outlet is timed to coincide with Telus’ fibre optics expansion in Quesnel,” retail manager Amber Townsend said.

“Come in and discuss this option or any other aspect of your Telus product with one of the five fully-trained, qualified customer service representatives.”

To launch their new expanded premises, ABC is throwing open the doors on a gala open house this Saturday beginning with a ribbon cutting at 9 a.m. with Mayor Bob Simpson and the cutting of a fabulous Quesnel Bakery cake at 11 a.m. Cariboo Radio will also be onsite from 9 a.m. – noon and there will be hourly door prizes. There are balloons for the kids and a grand prize draw for a Samsung Galaxy tablet at 5 p.m.

During the festivities ABC staff will also draw for a Stanley Cup popcorn maker from entries by customers who have activated a new smart phone in the past two months.

From the very beginning, ABC Communication has prided itself on local service, local staff and local commitment.

“You can feel good spending your money with people who are firmly rooted in the community, are familiar local faces and they care about providing the best service possible,” Townsend added.

Retaining the corporate headquarters in Quesnel is more proof of ABC’s commitment to the community.

“We’re here to stay,” Allen said with a smile.
