Verizon Wireless has just signed a lease on an old big-box retail store (formerly a K-Mart) to expand their call center in Charlotte.
They will be leasing about 90,000 sqft in the newly renovated strip mall at 2401 Sardis Road North.
In a recent statement Verizon Wireless said they are outgrowing their current 40,000 sqft space on Sardis Crossing Drive, just north of Matthews. Their new facility will allow them to add between 100 and 300 new jobs over the next several years.
Many of the old vacant big box stores around Charlotte’s old retail areas are being converted into a variety of alternative uses, including several churches on Independance Blvd., and a new public charter school on Freedom Drive.
