Main Street Wireless, LLC, formerly Magnum Wireless, of Chatfield, Minn. has opened in its new location at 20 Main Street South in Chatfield. The business, which originally opened in the Magnum Sports building in May 2013, is now located in the former Stevens Ford building.

The idea behind becoming an authorized Verizon Wireless retailer was due to the fact that “Verizon has the best service so it was logical to offer that service in this area” co-owner Lee Novotny stated adding that people no longer have to drive to Rochester, Minn. to receive service. The Chatfield location can provide more personal service to local residents. Main Street Wireless is the only authorized Verizon Wireless retailer in Fillmore County and is proudly locally owned and operated.

Owners and brothers Lee, Corey, and Paul Novotny have remodeled the office space bringing the building back to life. According to Lee Novotny the new location has several advantages including a larger space with room for expansion, a larger parking lot and a great location on Main Street with very nice big windows.

Services available include new accounts, upgrades, adding lines, paying bills and more. There are many phones on display including Samsung, iPhones, Droids, and other popular cell phones as well as accessories of all kinds.

Since opening the business in 2013 the community of Chatfield as well as Fillmore County residents have been very supportive. Lee states that it has been “pretty busy” with a lot of people coming in. The business currently employs two people other than the owners.

The brothers also do their part in supporting the community of Chatfield and Fillmore County also. Lee is the Assistant Fillmore County Attorney and additionally has a practice in Chatfield. Paul owns Magnum Sports in Chatfield and farms. The three men are also involved in the family business, Chatfield Trucking. Paul is also on the Chatfield City Council.

When asked what is the latest and greatest offerings from Verizon Wireless, Lee explained there is now the More Everything Plan which includes 25 GB of free Cloud Storage and unlimited messaging to any mobile number in the world. Also now available is the Verizon Edge Program where the full retail price of a new phone is split into 24 monthly payments and added to your monthly bill. After 30 days, with at least 50 percent of your phones price paid off, you are e .....
