MetroPCS newest Marlins Park retail offering

MetroPCS newest Marlins Park retail offering

PHILADELPHIA -- Marlins Park is home to more than just baseball.

All along, part of the planning for the building was to provide other retail outlets. Now, the fourth and final retail shop on the West Plaza is open.

When fans head to Marlins Park on Tuesday for the opening of the Marlins' meeting with the Braves, they will see a MetroPCS store.

MetroPCS now has a storefront at Marlins Park as part of a long-term retail and promotional partnership with the Marlins.

The vision for the West Plaza is to be more than an entrance area for the retractable-roof building.

The retail shops are making the West Plaza an urban center in Little Havana.

MetroPCS joins three other retail outlets, La Baguette, Holiday Bakery and YoBlendz. The West Plaza is open to the public year-round. There is a large video screen, and local residents can stop by the West Plaza and watch the game from outside the building.

All West Plaza shops are open during regular work hours. The MetroPCS store at Marlins Park is open Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m.-7 p.m. ET, and Sunday from 12-5 p.m.

On game days, MetroPCS will remain open at least one hour after the first pitch.
