As you may have noticed in your town there may be somewhat of a few EE stores all of which basically next door to each other this is because when the store first re-branded its stores it did that remove those which where right next to each other, being that they used to be T-Mobile and Orange this was quite common.
However following a review of its retail needs, the new network has announced that it will close 78 of these stores which deem to be duplicated in the same area, with the first closures starting in February.
This is around 11 percent of the company’s total amount of stores, but oddly the network has announced that there will be little to no job cuts, as they would be moving front line staff to other stores.
“All front line staff will be moving to the other store which will boost service levels significantly. A store can only have one manager, so we will look to redeploy the small number of affected managers where possible,” an EE spokesperson.
“As part of this, where we have two EE stores in very close proximity to each other – in some places they are just a door away – we have decided to consolidate. This makes commercial sense and will also help us manage the high levels of demand in our stores and improve the customer experience.”
So if you see a closing down sign on an EE store or suddenly it disappears, don’t fret as there is still one somewhere in your town.
