Everyone Had Fun at Grand Opening of Xfinity Store in Puyallup, WA

As promised, Comcast opened the second Xfinity Store of its kind in Western Washington on Saturday. Fans lined up to meet UFC fighter Michael Chiesa, who’s the star of our video above. Chiesa was the winner of season 15’s The Ultimate Fighter. Chiesa, undefeated in his professional MMA career, will face Anton Kuivanen on Feb. 23 at UFC 157 in Anaheim, Calif.

The new XFINITY Store is at 5614 176th St E, Puyallup, by the Safeway and Starbucks in Canyon Crossing. The 3,200-square-foot center provides Comcast customers with an opportunity to explore, learn about and interact directly with the latest XFINITY products and services. You can read more about the store’s innovative and customer-friendly qualities in our previous post (and there’s a map there too).

The store is a new location for this growing area, Frederickson, and thus created 10 new jobs. Comcast celebrated this new connection to the community by donating $5,000 to two nonprofits that support our military personnel and their families at nearby Joint Base Lewis-McChord. That comes up in the video, above, too.
