Cellular Sales, the nation's largest Verizon premium wireless retailer, recently announced the grand opening of a new store at 1435 Rock Spring Road in Bel Air.

"Cellular Sales is pleased to open our newest store on Rock Spring Road," Kory White, regional director of Cellular Sales, said in a press release. "We want our store to be a resource for customers to get all their wireless services needs met with outstanding service by our experts."

Cellular Sales was founded in Knoxville, Tenn., 19 years ago and has, for the past four years, been named by Inc. Magazine one of the nation's fastest growing privately-owned retailers operating 500 stores with nearly 4,000 employees. The company operates 13 retail locations in Maryland.

The new store made possible the creation of seven new sales professional positions, all of which will be filled by local job-seekers.

According to White, the wireless retail store's opening will provide a boost to the local economy not only by the creation of new sales positions but also because Cellular Sales' employees nationwide average more than $51,000 a year, higher than the U.S. median household income.

"Cellular Sales is committed to providing superior wireless services," he said. "We not only want to contribute our products and services to the community, but also to provide community members with employment opportunities as motivated sales professionals."
