With ‘no contract’ options becoming increasingly popular, we’re starting to see quite a bit of growth in the prepaid carrier market. Let’s take Consumer Cellular, for example, who has just added 750 new retail locations inside Sears across the United States.
Since their partnership with Sears in 2011, this marks the 3rd time a Consumer Wireless expansion has taken place. John Maverick, Consumer Cellular CEO explains,
Sears has been an excellent partner – helping Consumer Cellular with our expansion into new markets and enhancing our ability to reach more customers nationwide – and we are thrilled to continue our growth momentum across its 750 retail locations. This new display allows us to showcase a broader range of Consumer Cellular products for customers and provides the hands-on buying experience that can be important when choosing a cellphone to best fit a specific lifestyle.
Along with the Sears retail expansion, Consumer Cellular is also making the Motorola Moto G available for $150. The Moto G has been very well-received in prepaid markets due to its great quality hardware, software, and extremely inexpensive price. It’s great to see this phone branch out to more service providers!
