Personal customer service to remain important in a different way 

Telenor commissioned an award-winning Hungarian interior design studio to redesign its downtown shop and give it a new urban function. In the future, the retail shop of the mobile operator will double as an open office space. Although the importance of online customer service has grown during the lockdown, face-to-face shopping continues to be popular for all age groups. The shop has been redesigned in line with evolving market needs. Astoria has become an iconic site for Telenor over the past 25 years. In 1994, this was the company’s first independent shop to open and it still has the largest floor space of all shops in Telenor’s retail network.
