“It is incredibly gratifying to reach this milestone because it means the very best in high-quality, affordable Apple and AT&T products and wireless plans are now available to even more customers across the country,” said Jason Ellis, senior vice president of Technology Brands. “Each new store opening reinforces our goal of expanding our national footprint to address the insatiable demand for value, variety and convenience to customers in markets that previously have been underserviced.”
Spring Mobile’s rapid growth has been unprecedented in the wireless reseller industry and is evident of the ever-growing demand for AT&T products and services.
