BAXTER SPRINGS —Davis Cellular had its ribbon cutting ceremony and grand opening last week to open its doors to the citizens of Baxter Springs.

Davis is a Verizon and DirecTV retailer. They sell cell phones, satellite services, cell phone accessories, and wireless Internet through Verizon.

Heather Davis, marketing director, said they like to go into smaller communities who have to drive 30 or more minutes to get cell phone services. She said it is “kind of their niche.” She said there are a lot of people in Baxter who don’t want to drive to pay a bill, get new accessories, or just get that new iPhone.

“We provide a staff out of the community who provides good service to their fellow community members,” Davis said.

Davis said they have 15 other stores which are all in small communities throughout Missouri. The Baxter Springs location is their first Kansas location and they plan to continue expanding into the state.

Davis said they are also a member of the Chamber of Commerce in Baxter Springs.

She said because of the grand opening was last week they are currently running several of “grand opening specials” in the store.

Store hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.
