Release on mobile has purchased Teknikmagasinet
It will provide sales and repairs for used mobile phones in 65 stores.
The mobile and recycling company is now buying Teknikmagasinet, which has a total of 65 stores in Norway and Sweden. The idea behind the acquisition is to be able to provide customers with used cell phones in physical stores.
Release already has five physical stores in Norway, where they make a living selling used cell phones as well as offering repairs for, say, broken screens in the store.
Teknikmagasinet is already doing cell phone repairs in its stores, but it will also sell used cell phones to increase the focus on reuse by people.
One strength, noted by release manager Austin Eriksen, is that customers have the opportunity to see and feel the products used in store before they make a decision.
– We will offer you broken screen replacement and other repairs during the day at stores with good availability and long business hours. We already have a wide range of used cell phones, and we sell our cellphone subscriptions at low prices and good customer service. Eriksen emphasizes that we are the only ones with this kit and the complete package, and adds that reuse and sustainability will be the core of Teknikmagasinet in the future.
