MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - Locally owned Verizon Authorized Retailer, TEAM Wireless, has acquired the former Range Bank property on the corner of US-41 and Wright St. in front of Super One Foods in Marquette.
A brand new, three-unit building will be constructed on this 3195 Wright St. site over the next year and will become home to a brand new TEAM Wireless retail space, as well as two other businesses.
TEAM Wireless will relocate to this new site from its current Marquette location next to H&R Block in front of the Westwood Mall sometime in 2020.
“Once the decision to redesign our retail space in Marquette was made, we began searching for the right property to give us the space and freedom to accomplish that goal. I am excited we’ve found it” according to TEAM Wireless Owner and CEO, Brian Boucher. “This spacious, three-unit site, will allow TEAM Wireless to build a destination beyond wireless retail and we’re thankful to already have another business on board from the start. We’re searching for a third business to join the new Wright St. site in 2020.”
“This new TEAM Wireless location will be on the scale of our flagship Escanaba, MI location, where we created a space allowing our guests to experience the latest technology and to be inspired while they visit. Additional features of the new Marquette location will include a device repair center, lounge area, and a few other surprises. We’re proud to be a U.P. based company and we’re passionate about bringing the best wireless retail experience to our locations right here in our backyard. Our entire organization strives to be a part of our communities as shown through our youth sports sponsorships, charity drives like our 2019 National Pediatric Cancer Foundation fundraiser, and community programs like our Backpacks 4 Kids initiative. A brand new store of this caliber will allow us to become an even bigger part of the Marquette and the surrounding communities of Negaunee, Ishpeming, Harvey, and Gwinn.”
Brian Boucher and family reside in the Upper Peninsula.
TEAM Wireless was founded in 2001 in Escanaba, and now independently owns and operates 51 Verizon Authorized Retailer locations across Michigan, Wisconsin, and Illinois.
