LAWTON, Okla. , Jan. 10, 2014 – U.S. Cellular celebrated the opening of its new high-concept store in Lawton during a ribbon-cutting ceremony Thursday, Jan. 9.

The highly experiential store features interactive technology so customers can easily compare phones, features and plans. It has a lounge area for customers and U.S. Cellular associates to engage in a more comfortable shopping experience.
