Fort Worth, TX -- Teletouch Communications, Inc., a leading U.S. cellular services provider and mobile electronics retailer, announced today that it has signed an Exclusive Retailer Agreement with T-Mobile USA, Inc., a leading national wireless carrier. The three-year agreement provides for Teletouch to open, operate and manage high-volume mall locations, with the Company’s first five new locations opening in major markets in Oklahoma, starting immediately. Further discussions are underway to explore possible expansion opportunities in a variety of other markets, including Texas and the ten Southeastern states that Teletouch previously served as a wireless messaging provider for many years.
“We are excited to work with T-Mobile USA to expand our retail distribution, leveraging our current Texas-based core wireless business into new markets across the country. While other U.S. wireless carriers are rationalizing their post-merger, over-saturated retail channels and shuttering company and agent stores, T-Mobile has a strong focus and support team geared to growing its authorized dealer and third-party retailer channels nationwide,” stated T.A. “Kip” Hyde, Jr., President and COO of Teletouch. “We understand GSM-network-based cellular communications very well, having been in the business since its inception in the 1980’s, and are pleased that T-Mobile has chosen us to help support its retail growth plans.”
Amy McCune, T-Mobile USA Regional Vice President, added, “As T-Mobile continues to grow and expand its national retail operations, it is imperative that we choose retailers that have the knowledge, experience and capability of providing the very highest levels of customer service. We’re pleased to work with Teletouch, as they have demonstrated over many years their commitment to delivering exceptional customer service and building long-term customer relationships with customers.”
