BANGOR, Maine — The people at AT&T think Bangor is a good call.
Despite persistent speculation to the contrary, the new building that has sprung up on Stillwater Avenue near the main entrance to Walmart will not be another chain eatery, it will be selling cellphones and services.
“We are excited to be coming to Bangor to set up shop sometime early in 2012,” said Meaghan Wims, an AT&T spokeswoman.
Carol Epstein, a broker for Epstein Commercial Real Estate in Bangor, confirmed Monday that the future tenant of 878 Stillwater Ave. will be an AT&T cellular retail store.
“Speaking as a broker and representing the company in that capacity, I can say it’s just about finished and the tenant is now going to go in and do a lot of interior setup,” said Epstein.
Site work began in June and construction of the 3,500-square-foot building started in July.
