Xfinity Store Ribbon Cutting-1

Opened on March 1, 2014, the Xfinity store in Schaumburg was Comcast’s first retail location in Illinois.

Comcast will open its second Xfinity retail store in Illinois in late spring in Morton Grove at 7929 W. Golf Road in the Washington Commons shopping center.  The first Illinois store opened in Schaumburg on March 1.

The new 5,700 square-foot space is designed to give visitors real life, hands-on demonstrations of Xfinity’s range of products and services, from cable TV, high-speed Internet and home phone service, to the company’s home security and home automation platform, Xfinity Home.  The store also will feature iPads and other mobile devices visitors can use to test Xfinity’s Android and iOS apps.  Apps range from Xfinity TV, which allows customers to watch live TV on any screen in their homes and download and take their DVR recordings with them on the go, to Xfinity Home, which allows customers to manage and monitor their homes remotely.

“The Xfinity store gives us the opportunity to provide visitors first-hand demonstrations of our innovations in TV viewing, communications and accessing content at home and on the go, as well as the latest in home security and automation,” said John Crowley, Comcast’s Greater Chicago Region senior vice president.  “In addition, we’ve set up comfortable seating areas so visitors can settle in and experience Xfinity products and services as though they’re in their own homes.”

In addition to product and service demos, customers also can pay bills, pick up and return equipment and get assistance from trained, knowledgeable sales consultants.

The Xfinity Store in Morton Grove will have about 15 employees.  Store hours will be Mondays through Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Sundays from 12:00 to 5:00 p.m.

“Morton Grove is pleased to welcome the Xfinity Store and its employees and is honored that Comcast chose our community as the site of one of its first stores in Illinois,” said Morton Grove Mayor Dan DiMaria.  “The Xfinity store will help bring even more people to Morton Grove to shop at all of our retail establishments.”
