Public Mobile has been adding locations to their distribution channel at a rapid rate. A couple weeks ago their relationship with 60 Gateway Newstands started in Toronto (and soon Montreal). They partnered with Eyeshot Media for 4 convenience store locations, have a trial with Money Mart Canada and are also 1 of 9 carriers who are with the Loblaws new venture called “The Mobile Shop“.
Public is making additional inroads for their Montreal customers as they have signed an exclusive trial with 5 Ultramar Ltee/ Depanneur du Coin locations. These stores will have a Public Mobile store inside their location so people can buy a phone and a plan, not just a self serve grab and go display like the Gateway locations.
In a release today Alek Krstajic, CEO of Public Mobile stated that “Never have Canadians had so many choices in choosing a cell phone company. Distribution is key and we feel that working with these companies provides us with consistency and a chance to know that our services are being offered in the same places where our customers live, work and play”.
