Last week, Carphone Warehouse announced it has landed a deal with Samsung to open up 60 new stores all across the European borders.
It seems Samsung is not done yet, and has signed a deal with another known retailer in the UK, Phones 4U. Under the agreement, Phones 4U will open and manage 15 new flagship stores for Samsung in the UK.
The new flagship stores will be managed and operated by the Phones 4U staff, and will sell smartphones, tablets and wearable technology gadgets.
“Together, Phones 4u and Samsung offer amazing customer experiences that bring the latest mobile technology to life. The first fifteen stores will showcase a full range of Samsung phones, computing accessories and wearable technology. We are already a leading retailer of Samsung phones and are thrilled to be further developing our strong relationship,” says Scott Hooton, Chief Marketing Officer, Phones 4u.
It’s also worth mentioning that both parties have worked with each other successfully in the past, and the folks at Phones 4U are already managing the flagship Samsung store in Westfield Stratford, and also partnered with the Korean OEM for its stores within stores program at select retail locations. The retailer also ran pop-up stores for Samsung as a part of company’s official Olympics sponsorship in 2012.
Now, this comes a pretty decent move, and we could come across more Samsung stores then we used to.
