TELUS has been working on finding the right location in Uptown Saint John for the past two and a half years. It opened on Sept 6th in Market Square and we are very happy to welcome them!
Chuck Healy, TELUS Account Executive who lives uptown, has been a driving force in making sure a store would be located in the Uptown area. “There are a number of factors the drove our decision to have a location Uptown” says Healy. “First and foremost, we needed a location to support our business customers. Secondly, we wanted to have a meeting place for our community investment work where charities and non-profits can have use of the boardroom. We do a lot of grass roots type community work, and with a store uptown it can play a huge role in expanding our reach with our volunteer work and grants we give out.” “TELUS’s philosophy is Give Where We Live; we work to make a positive and lasting difference in our communities.”
And finally says Healy, “We are thrilled to play a role in the resurgence that has been happening Uptown for the past few years. It’s an exciting time in Uptown Saint John and we’re happy that our TELUS Authorized Dealer Partner, Highland Cellular saw this as a great opportunity to fill a gap in the market since there is no other Telecom store front Uptown,” says Healy.
Highland owners, Mark Worth and Tim Mahoney are excited to open their 8th TELUS location, and their first in New Brunswick. They have locations in Nova Scotia and Newfoundland. The store will employ up to 6 people including store Manager Emily Weaver along with Business Solutions Executive Roberto Mosca.
