Wind network expands into Ottawa, where the stores at?

We Want Wind!

WIND Mobile wants to take Canada by storm, but it can only do it one city at a time. For the initial launch, we only saw their services being offered to Calgary and Toronto regions, but now they’re ready to add another town to the mix: Ottawa.

Canada’s capital city has officially been blanketed in the Wind Mobile network, giving all those politicians (and other residents) another option for their cellular needs. The coverage map reaches up to Buckingham in the north, Orleans in the east, Kanata in the west, and Hunt Club and airport to the south.

With the addition of Ottawa, Wind is now available in a total of four cities in Canada (the fourth is Edmonton). The expectation is that Vancouver should be one of the next ones to join the fray, since it’s one of the biggest cities in the country.

The curiosity is that, for whatever reason, there don’t appear to be any WIND stores in Ottawa to accompany the launch of the network in the area. Can any Ottawa readers verify? Any WIND kiosks inside Blockbuster Video locations?

    So far, the map has not been changed to indicate Ottawa is a home zone, and the store finder cannot find any stores for Ottawa postal codes.

  • Colleen McColl

    This should help, this is a reply from WIND

    I’m including a link to our Location Finder tool, you can search your neighbourhood by postal code and bring up your local stores and contact info. All new retail outlets and sites will be added to this map as they become available, so check back often!

    Now Hiring: Ottawa & Edmonton
    It’s been an exhilarating couple of months since my last blog post. As a WIND team member, I shared in the excitement of our Calgary and Toronto launches. And as head of recruitment, my mind was already on our next launch cities: Edmonton and Ottawa.
    One of the things we really enjoyed when we were recruiting in our initial launch cities was the chance to meet so many talented, enthusiastic people who wanted to help change the game.
    So I’m very happy to invite Ottawa candidates who are looking for a retail position to come join us at an open house session taking place at the Westgate Shopping Centre Thursday, January 21st, from 1:00pm to 9:00pm. And if you can’t attend the open house in person, you can still send us your resume to our career site here.
    For those of you in Edmonton, we don’t have any news about an event just yet, but I encourage you to send your resume online too (find it here!).
    WHAT: WIND retail hiring open house
    WHERE: Westgate Shopping Centre (get directions), look for us by the food court, next to the Second Cup
    WHEN: Thursday, January 21st, 1 pm – 9 pm
    For everyone else interested in a position with the WIND team, I’d encourage you to keep checking back on our career site for new positions as we continue to invest and grow.
