No later than August 2011, TruVista cable television, Internet and wireless customers will have a new location where they can purchase products, get hands-on demonstrations and pay their bills.

In a Nov. 29 release, the Chester-based telecommunications company announced that it will move its Camden offices from Dusty Bend to a new facility to be built on Springdale Drive next to Wal-Mart and Tractor Supply Company.

“We’re excited about the plans for this beautiful new state-of-the-art facility,” said TruVista Director of Sales and Service Edward Hinson in a press release.

Hinson said the new store will feature wireless phones and accessories, home and business networking products and digital video recorders, or DVRs. TruVista’s services will available in hands-on “demo areas” featuring media centers, high definition home theaters and home security systems.

Hinson said TruVista is also taking advantage of its strategic technology partnership with AT&T.

“They have recently upgraded their 3G network that is allowing TruVista wireless mobile customers to take advantage of higher upload and download speeds,” said Hinson.

The company said its new Springdale location will also house TruVista’s Camden executive team as well as its installation and service operation.

In an e-mail exchange, TruVista Vice President of Sales and Marketing Allison Johnson confirmed TruVista has purchased the land it will build on from Town and Country of Camden.

“Once the building is complete, we will have invested well over a million dollars for the land and the approximately 5,000-square foot state-of-the-art facility,” Johnson said. “We have been looking for property since we purchased the Camden operations from Charter. The new location will display our products and services in a way that allows customers to see the full benefits of the services. Additionally, the new location is more convenient and centrally located for customers.”

Camden Zoning Administrator John Burns said plans for the new TruVista office have been approved but that the city is still waiting on a contractor to submit a building permit.

Johnson also hinted there may be an expansion of services or coverage areas in the near future.

“TruVista is constantly evaluating areas for growth to better serve the community. The majority of our capital investments are based on customer requests and new construction developments. We have several areas planned for expansion in 2011 and many more to come,” said Johnson.

Burns said there are other commercial developments in Springdale Plaza across from TruVista’s new home. He said space is being renovated in the plaza for a new dentist’s office and noted that the former Winn-Dixie -- which was more recently a Steve & Barry’s location -- has been subdivided.

“The Dollar Tree is going to move from next to SAFE Credit Union and take about 11,000 square feet,” said Burns. “Farmer’s Home Furniture is already taking 25,000 square feet with the remaining space undetermined."

Burns said he has heard that a clothing store will move into the Dollar Tree’s current space.

“But it’s nothing definite,” he said.
