This is either brilliant marketing or AT&T needs more money… an AT&T Winnebago anyone?
It looks like it’s only in Vermont right now, but who knows this might catch on..
AT&T today announced that its Vermont sales team is embarking upon a mobile retail tour designed to better assist customers in areas where AT&T has limited brick-and-mortar locations.
Traveling in a 31-foot AT&T-branded retro-fitted RV equipped with the latest wireless devices, the team of sales and service experts will traverse Vermont over the next several weeks, making more than two dozen stops between now and the end of October.
"There is a lot of ground to cover. We’re looking forward to getting out there and meeting our customers, especially those transitioning from Unicel, and helping them find the right wireless solution to meet their individual needs," said Steve Krom, vice president and general manager, AT&T New England. "If we can save some folks a little time and gas money by bringing our store closer to their home, that’s a nice bonus as well."
