The announcement that Consumer Cellular, an Oregon based company plans to move into the T-Mobile facility by August first, could not be better news for the area. Roger Lee, with Economic Development for Central Oregon (EDCO) says it was a matter of timing meeting opportunity.  "You know, they were in a position where they really needed a facility, in fact were looking at space in Arizona, they may have mentioned that, before this announcement came (T-Mobile leaving) and we immediately got them information; the same day and within 2 days, they'd done the site visit so it was a very exciting time so see something actually from start to almost finish, within a 4 month time frame is pretty unusual."  Consumer Cellular CEO John Marick says they are thrilled to have the opportunity to move to Central Oregon, as many of them already spend a lot of time here.  He adds that they plan to open by August first; and the plan is to employ about 650 people within a few years.
