Vodafone UK to Open 50 more Retail Stores

Vodafone UK today plans to roll out a further 50 stores over the coming financial year, taking the total to 400. These new stores will create approximately 200 additional roles in retail. The new stores will start to appear on the high street and in shopping centres from September starting with Bristol Cabot Circus and White City London in September and Liverpool One in October. It is planned that the majority of the new retail locations will be found, and work completed to turn them into stores by spring 2009.

Following a trial with Cable&Wireless, Vodafone is also rolling out new broadband connections to stores to improve the speed of tills and back office systems which will quicken the time it takes to purchase or order a new phone, pay a bill or update account information.
