With the instant nature of new technologies, Verizon is transforming the way you shop.

Verizon says you expect simple ways to discover new products that are handpicked with you in mind. You expect the freedom to shop on your terms—whenever, wherever you want. And when you’re ready to leave, you expect the checkout process to be quick and easy. Verizon says it hears you and has created a store that supports your ever-evolving digital lifestyle.


The new store features four regions:

  1. The Discovery Region lets you discover and explore the latest and greatest products. Here you can check out the hottest and most talked about devices and accessories.
  2. The Collaborate Region is all about community. Verizon has designed collaborative spaces where you can work together to learn about the latest technologies.
  3. The Guided Region is where you can get clear explanations of how products and systems work, and staff are available for in-depth guided demonstrations.
  4. The Basics Region is all about the essentials. It provides a quick grab-and-go area when you know what you want, in order to get in and out quickly.

“Think of it as the grab-and-go convenience of a newsstand and the sense of community from your local book store, along with the frictionless nature of ecommerce, all in one location,” said Irwin Siongco, vice president of sales and operations. “Every aspect of our Next Gen store in Hilo is focused with you in mind and how Verizon can keep you beyond connected in your daily life. Our vision is about creating an immersive experience that addresses your needs and how Verizon can be there for you.”

To contact the store, call (808) 935-6931, or stop by between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday or between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Sundays.
