Eisenhower Sprint Celebrates Grand Opening in Livingston

LIVINGSTON, NJ — Members of the Livingston Township Council and Livingston Area Chamber of Commerce helped celebrate the grand opening of the new Sprint at the Container Store Complex on Eisenhower Parkway on Friday with a commemorative ribbon cutting.

Daniel Poffenberger, district manager for Wireless Lifestyle, was enthusiastic about the new location, stating that the reason this location was chosen was because the company saw a “major opportunity to help out in the community.”

“We are the largest indirect retailer for Sprint, so we’re always looking to give back to any community that we can,” said Poffenberger. “What we do is we search for any developing areas and we look for a need to provide a service. We’re actually one of the highest rated in the entire country for our customer experience, so we’re looking to give that back.”

According to Poffenberger, the company often gives more than $10,000 per year to it communities by participating in sponsorships, providing grants to local students, discounting veterans on any in-store products and more. In addition to recently proving a $1000 grant to a Livingston student, Sprint is also looking forward to getting involved with Livingston-area sports teams or youth clubs.

“WE want to become part of the Livingston community,” said Anthony DelMauro, store manager. “We want to be more than just a store.”

As it continues to open additional stores in the area, Sprint is looking to hire locally for multiple positions, including store managers, assistant managers and retail/sales associates. According to Poffenberger, the only requirement for being a sales associate is a bubbly personality.

The team also said that it intends to support other local businesses by offering services at discounted rates and will also join the Livingston Area Chamber of Commerce in hopes of partnering with local businesses to help increase the revenue of the entire municipality.

I have decided it is time to spend more time in ...
