Virgin Mobile to open flagship in Chicago
New York — Virgin Mobile will open a flagship on Thursday in Chicago, the New York Times reported. The wireless company, which is owned by Sprint, hopes to build awareness of its brand by redefining the relationship between the customer and the carrier, according to the report.
In the report, Ron Faris, head of brand marketing at Virgin Mobile, said the store will focus on what customers can do with the phones as opposed to the phones themselves. Salespeople, for example, will be responsible for knowing about new apps to install on the phones, and they will hold app tutorials and demo classes.
Safeway in Bozeman, Mont., awarded LEED Silver
New York — Safeway’s store in Bozeman, Mont., was recently awarded LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) Silver certification by the U.S. Green Building Council. It is the first LEED for Retail certified store in the state of Montana, and one of roughly 200 LEED-certified grocery stores in the United States.
Designed by MulvannyG2 Architecture, the store opened in December 2011. So much of the waste stream was diverted from landfills during construction that Safeway earned exemplary performance credit through USGBC and 50% of materials used in construction came from within a 500 mile radius.
