Vodafone has announced that this week it has opened all 130 of the Phones 4u stores it purchased from the administrator ahead of the company’s ‘middle of November’ deadline.
The operator also celebrated the opening of its 500th store – a converted Phones 4u outlet in North Finchley – this week, demonstrating yet further its large retail footprint.
Vodafone confirmed that all of the shops now branded, IT integrated and fully staffed.
