Comcast is planning to remodel its Xfinity retail store on Division Street as part of a more than $4 million investment to expand the company’s brick-and-mortar footprint in the state.
The company is adding more than 1,400 square feet to the store at 4423 N. Division St., in addition to remodeling the existing 2,100-square-foot space.
Comcast is remodeling the store to “make the customer experience better and more convenient” by providing more space with hands-on displays to showcase Xfinity products and services, according to a company news release.
Renovations are slated for completion by summer.
Comcast also announced plans to open seven retail stores this year, including one in Spokane Valley.
The stores – ranging from 1,600 to 3,000 square feet – will be staffed by trained technology specialists who can help customers manage their home WiFi, among other things.
The new store would be the first corporately-owned location in Spokane Valley. A Comcast authorized dealer operates a store at 1510 N. Argonne Road.
The company did not confirm a location for the new Spokane Valley store, but building permits recently filed with the city show tenant improvements for a Comcast store at 13826 E. Indiana Ave.
The new stores will bring the total number of Xfinity locations to 25 in the state. Comcast has built or redesigned more than 400 stores nationwide since 2015.
