Home Telecom Retail Service Center Opens in Nexton with Virtual Ribbon-Cutting



MONCKS CORNER, SC October 12, 2020 — It may not be the traditional Grand Opening with food trucks, giveaways, and open house tours, but the times themselves are far from traditional. Thanks to virtual technology however, Home Telecom officially opens their new Nexton Retail Office today, Monday, October 12, with a virtual ribbon-cutting by Home Telecom leaders, employees and Nexton representatives.

The official grand opening of the 20,000 square foot Home Telecom Technology Center has been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic but leasing of retail and office space on the first and second floors are underway with Bridge Commercial. The Home Telecom retail space is now open for business and staffed with Home Telecom customer relationship specialists and technicians ready to support the Summerville service area.

(1st Row L-R) - Debra Ford, Cassie Cataline, William Helmly, Gina Shuler; (2nd Row L-R) - Frances Brumfield, Jessica Pace, Sharee Willis, April Floyd (3rd Row L-R)- Lashonya Frazier, Katelin McMillan, Donna Hoffman, Shawn Trotter

Designed by Charleston architecture and interior design studio, The Middleton Group, the ground floor features a traditional brick façade with large expanses of glass and metal panel. Located prominently at the junction of Nexton Parkway and Brighton Park Boulevard, the building portrays a combination of the long-standing tradition established by Home Telecom and the progressive design that highlights the high-tech business environment Nexton seeks to showcase.

“Although holding a virtual ribbon-cutting is not ideal or what we had planned initially,” said Home Telecom President and CEO, William Helmly, “we are excited about positioning Home Telecom in a way that provides closer local support for the full slate of telecom, entertainment, and security products and services already being provided by us to the Summerville community.”

“The addition of Home Telecom’s new retail service center and Concept office space in Nexton complements our commitment to innovation and our dedication to growing our commercial corridor,” said Brent Gibadlo, Vice President and General Manager of Nexton. “After being in business more than 100 years, Home Telecom continues to revolutionize its industry, and we are excited to welcome them to the community.”

Later this fall, Home Telecom will unveil Concept, their exciting new high-tech collaborative workspace encircling the entire second floor. Concept will offer a truly unique open-air co-working environment; diverse office space and workspace options; and an amenity-rich atmosphere featuring multi-gigabit internet and WiFi, multiple breakrooms, phone rooms, multiple conference rooms, a dining area, and private seating overlooking Nexton’s beautiful landscape.

“We have worked closely with the Middleton Group to create a truly exceptional collaborative workspace environment that is technologically advanced, inspirational, functional, and comfortable for the region’s growing entrepreneurs and business owners,” said Helmly. “We are as excited about Concept as we are about our new service center.”
