Yelp Orlando Elites Experience AT&T’s Store of the Future

Yelp Orlando Elites were among the first to check out a new high-tech shopping experience in the brand new, innovative AT&T store at Waterford Lakes Town Center. The first one opening in the Southeast, elites walked into this location before the sing was even posted outside or the paper off of the brand spankin' new windows. We entered an untouched world of technology! 

"I have seen the future and the future is this ATT store! wow. Truly a great move for the ATT folks to be moving beyond 'cell phones' and making it a full 360 digital life experience." – Ricky L


AT&T's innovative new store design features interactive spaces that encourage exploration that showed unique ways your wireless device, accessory and app work together. No matter what everyone was interested in; wireless technology for work or play, we all discover something new. AT&T experts were all on hand to show us every in and out of each gadget and answer any questions we had. 

"It's very spacious, chic and inviting! On top of that it's staffed by people who are really friendly, knowledgeable and passionate about new AT&T products. It's a major upgrade from the AT&T store that I'm used to. I especially loved the look and design of the high tables and chairs." – Erin N


Elites were greeted with a passport to check off as they visited each station and upon completing a run through the entire store, they were entered into with a drawing from 5 fabulous prizes. Among them were tickets to a Tampa Bay Buccaneers home game, a Windows 8 tablet and a Beats by Dre pill! 

There was an interactive texting and driving simulator that we had the opportunity to test out and also sign up for AT&T's "It Can Wait" pledge. We worked our way around learning about UVERSE, various accessories and different ways all of our devises can work together. We also enjoyed wine & beer along with some delightful finger foods from Cocktails Catering

"As one of the staff said 'No instead of just telling you how cool something is we can SHOW you how cool it is.' And boy did they! You could check out everything from the latest phones, to 1080p 60" portable projectors (it was the size of a small box of candy), to the new Samsung Galaxy Gear watches…" Meghan R.
