A second Carphone Warehouse is store is planned for the Wellington Retail Park in Waterlooville. The first Carphone Warehouse is located in the main precinct in the same building as the former Grab-A-Laptop store. The new Carphone Warehouse will be located next-door-but-one to Waterlooville’s second Costa Coffee.
Whether mobile phone shops in the UK are sustainable a difficult question to answer. Habits are changing, smartphone users are moving away from traditional monthly contracts to buying a phone outright then adding the PAYG or Contract SIM afterwards. In addition Apple are bringing their “iPhone Upgrade Program” to the UK later this year, for a fixed monthly fee, paid directly to Apple, subscribers to the program get a brand new iPhone handset every year.
P.S. Is it just me, or is Carphone Warehouse’s company name just a little dated?
