Centers provide one-stop cellular shop for guests’ mobile phone needs
This summer Target will expand the number of stores offering full-service mobile phone centers as an added convenience to guests. The Target Mobile centers, a partnership with RadioShack, are in-store wireless shopping stations that enable Target guests to purchase mobile phones and activate contracts from three of the nation's top carriers. Beginning August 15, Target Mobile will roll out to additional Target stores. By mid-2011 the centers will be available in the majority of Target stores nationwide.
Drawing on the combined expertise of Target and RadioShack, the centers will offer a selection of the best mobile handsets and accessories including headsets, cases and chargers, as well as service plans from the nation’s top carriers, all at competitive prices. In-store activation will ensure that guests walk away with everything they need from their new mobile devices.
Minneapolis-based Target Corporation (NYSE:TGT) serves guests at 1,743 stores in 49 states nationwide and at Target.com. Target is committed to providing a fun and convenient shopping experience with access to unique and highly differentiated products at affordable prices. Since 1946, the corporation has given 5 percent of its income through community grants and programs like Take Charge of Education. Today, that giving equals more than $3 million a week.
