Providing all your phone service needs

One local cell phone dealer and repair business is aiming to provide cellular service with a personal touch to LaRue Countians.

Hometown Wireless is located on 74 Shawnee Drive in Hodgenville. Their hours are Mondays through Fridays from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The Bluegrass Cellular and H2O Wireless dealer offers a wide selection of new and used phones, phone accessories and phone repair. Hometown Wireless is owned by James “Jim” Ferrie and the business also has locations in Campbellsville and Elizabethtown.

The Hodgenville location was opened in August 2011 and it’s managed by Mike and Tammy Fisher. Mike Fisher said he and his wife Tammy both worked at a local construction company when the economy took its toll on the industry.

“Things were really slow and we were starting to think about looking for other jobs,” Mike Fisher said. “We go to church with Jim and he wanted to start a store in LaRue County. He asked us if we would manage it and he knew he could trust us. The rest is history.”

Tammy Fisher said the thing they like the most about their jobs is they both like helping their customers locally so they don’t have to go outside of the county to find cell phone service.

“People in LaRue County can do everything here and we can help them find the best service that meets their needs,” Tammy Fisher said. “They don’t have to go out of the county and they don’t have to wait as long when they come here. We can provide them with a more personal service right here in the community.”
