Cricket Wireless brand and GameStop Corp announced today that they have teamed up to sell Cricket Wireless phones and service in more than 2,800 GameStop U.S. store locations.
After a successful trial in select markets, GameStop stores will begin offering Cricket Wireless starting next month with the phased rollout expected to be completed by the end of October.
GameStop will expand its buy-sell-trade program to let customers sell their existing phones, video game systems, and other electronic devices to GameStop and use the proceeds of the sales to purchase new Cricket phones.
GameStop Corp. already operates a number of Cricket branded exclusive stores. Today's announcement extends the partnership between the two companies to put Cricket phones in actual Gamestop stores.
