The stores, primarily branded as Sprint, will comprise RadioShack products and an exclusive selection of mobile devices, including the Samsung Galaxy S 6.
“With more stores, and including Boost and Virgin Mobile, we’re providing additional shopping opportunities and making it easier and more convenient for customers,” the company stated.
