Sprint Sets Up Shop on RadioShack’s Turf

Sprint Sets Up Shop on RadioShack's TurfSprint, the nation’s third largest wireless operator, is doubling its company-owned retail footprint by opening 1,435 Sprint-RadioShack stores.

According to an announcement from the well-respected carrier, the expansion will immediately give more customers across the country improved access to Sprint’s various products and services.

“Our new products and services are resonating with customers – they’re coming to our stores to switch to Sprint through our Cut Your Bill in Half offer, take advantage of our industry-first leasing plans, and shop for new devices,” says Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure.
“Customers value the ability to walk into a neighborhood Sprint store near where they live and work,” Claure concludes. “With more stores, and including Boost and Virgin Mobile, we’re providing additional shopping opportunities and making it easier and more convenient for consumers to do business with us.”

Sprint says the retail expansion should also help to create nearly 3,500 new jobs.
