The Carphone Warehouse coming to the US


European mobile phone retailer The Carphone Warehouse is coming to the US.

With roughly 2,300 locations throughout Europe the UK-based giant has quite a presence but the name is mostly likely not recognized by many in the US.

That, however, should be a temporary problem as there are plans to open nearly 1,000 outlets throughout the US, some in Best Buy stores (similar to the mini Apple stores in some Best Buy locations, I’d imagine) with others occupying retail space of their very own. It’s not clear yet what their timeframe is for opening this many stores but the first is expected later this year.

Why in Best Buy stores? Because Best Buy owns 3% of the company.
