AT&T is closing its downtown San Francisco flagship store

AT&T will close its flagship store in downtown San Francisco, a company spokesperson confirmed.

The store at 1 Powell St. will close by Aug. 1, AT&T spokesperson Chris Collins told SFGATE.

“Consumer shopping habits continue to change and we change with them. That means serving customers where they are through the right mix of stores, digital channels and our phone-based care team,” Collins said in an emailed statement.

The closing will leave San Francisco with 11 remaining AT&T stores, including one nearby at Market and Fremont streets. All employees affected by the closing will be offered jobs at various locations in the city, Collins said.

AT&T isn̵[ads1]7;t the only telecommunications giant making similar moves out of downtown: Last month, T-Mobile closed its flagship store in Union Square. Since then, even more closures have hit the area: Cinemark closed its downtown San Francisco theater following news that Westfield will be leaving the massive San Francisco Center on Market Street, where the theater is located.

The historic eight-story building at 1 Powell St. was built in 1921 as a replacement headquarters for Bank of America, then called the Bank of Italy, after the 1906 earthquake. It is located directly behind the Powell Street BART station, making it a convenient location for shops.

“We are proud of our continued presence in the community, not only through our stores, but our local investment in world-class connectivity with our 5G and fiber networks,” Collins said.
