"The entire state of New York thrives on its connectivity, and we look forward to continuing to address the mobile needs of local consumers."

The new Buffalo store is located at 2290 Delaware Avenue, Suite 800 and offers customers the ultimate experience in customer interactivity. The new store features a fresh new look with interactive monitors allowing customers to see every feature that the phone they are looking at has to offer. Additionally, upon entering the store, guests are greeted by a digital welcome screen informing them on all of the latest and greatest products and new 'hot' deals.

The Cellular Connection is hosting a grand opening celebration event for the local community on Friday, September 10 through Saturday, September 11 at the new Buffalo store.

As part of its grand opening event, The Cellular Connection is making a $500 charitable donation to The Red Cross. A representative of the organization will be participating in a ribbon cutting ceremony at noon on Friday, September 10 to accept the check.
