DIGICEL BVI CELEBRATES ITS 2ND ANNIVERSARY
Monday, 29 November 2010 – Road Town, Tortola: It was exactly two years ago today (Saturday 29 November 2008) that the brand new state-of-the-art Digicel flagship store opened in the British Virgin Islands, bringing a wide variety of products and services, competitive rates, unbeatable coverage and superior customer care to residents and visitors alike.
In celebration of this significant milestone, Bates said Digicel is LIVE on ZROD 103.7FM for the entire morning as the company welcomes everyone into the flagship store on Waterfront Drive in Road Town. Digicel will have a whopping 20% discount on every phone in the store, including BlackBerry smartphones, and provide many giveaways throughout the day.
In addition, ten subscribers will be selected from every person who tops up at the store today to win $200.00 each for a total of $2,000.00. This draw will take place at 5pm.
“In 24 short months, we have made big inroads with our business in the BVI and are today proud to claim a substantial share of the market, with a customer base that is constantly growing,” declared an excited Country Manager Alan Bates. “It is true to say that our 22 staff faced a big challenge when we entered the market as the third operator in an already established “closed market”. This is a fantastic achievement and a credit to all involved.”
The Country Manager said customers have responded well to Digicel’s brand of best value mobile service and have delighted in the innovative commercial offers, including Free Weekends, Unlimited Caribbean Plans, Free Talk & Text and the current Christmas promotion – Shop for FREE, where customers can win $500 in FREE groceries over several weeks and a BlackBerry Gemini, and qualify for the grand draw on December 8, 2010 of $1,000.00 in FREE groceries every month from Riteway Food Markets and a BlackBerry Torch and $200 per month call time from Digicel, all for the next year!
“Digicel BVI says a big THANK YOU to its many valued customers and dedicated staff and invites everyone who has not yet switched to The Bigger, Better Network to do so today and enjoy Bigger, Better service and savings,” Bates said.
