John Lewis UK retail stores eyes replacement for collapsed Phones4u
Fallen Phones4u is getting a surprise replacement as British chain outlet John Lewis plans to step into the big void left by the closed phone dealer.
Phones4u was shut down in September last year as major UK carriers refused to supply products to the phone shop. However, John Lewis believes it can take up the big challenge to face Carphone Warehouse — who is virtually the only major retail store left in the country — in the battle for the market share that used to belong to Phones4u.
What John Lewis will do is to set up two test phone retail shops — one located at Oxford Street in London and the other in Cheadle Manchester. If things work out, buying director Johnathan Marsh believes they possess “a very strong technology business,” and should be able to provide customers the phones they need.
On the internet, search engine queries to John Lewis’ website revealed that people are checking for mobile phones from the store online. The firm has partnered with Vodafone and from today, people will be able to purchase from the 25 different phones listed at the company’s website (via the source link).
