Bellevue, WA — T-Mobile USA, Inc. has opened its 1,000th T-Mobile Premium Retailer (TPR) store, located in Pompano Beach, Fla. Providing customers with the same look and feel of a T-Mobile company store, TPR stores are owned and operated by third-party experts in wireless services.
The Pompano Beach store, which is owned and operated by Catcorp Inc., will host an official grand opening celebration on June 2. Based in Tulsa, Okla., Catcorp has been a T-Mobile branded retailer since 2009 and operates 38 additional stores in the Miami; Atlanta; Tulsa, Okla.; Wichita, Kan.; and Springfield, Mo., markets.
“Our TPR program has been a huge success for the company and our branded retailers and customers alike — reaching this 1,000th store milestone is an impressive moment,” says Mike Sentowski, vice president of national dealer programs for T-Mobile USA. “We’ve seen great momentum, and in just the past 18 months alone, the program has grown approximately 120%, demonstrating the strong relationships and commitment between T-Mobile and our branded retailers.”
This newest TPR location features the company’s new global design format, created to help simplify the consumer retail experience and make it more personal for each customer.
T-Mobile’s TPR program began in late 2007. Currently, T-Mobile has a nationwide branded presence through approximately 2,000 company-owned and 1,000 TPR stores. T-Mobile will continue its expansion in 2012, with plans to open more than 350 retail locations, in both company-owned and branded retailer formats, as well as continuing to provide customers with new and exciting products.
