Circuit City and Verizon Wireless have signed an agreement to create a Verizon Wireless store within each of more than 570 Circuit City stores around the country.
Verizon Wireless will operate the Verizon Wireless stores and be responsible for the employees and inventory.
Circuit City customers will be able to find the same things as in a Verizon Wireless store, including account look up, bill pay and other services previously only available at Verizon Wireless stores.
The rollout will begin in September and will be completed by November. Verizon Wireless signs will be displayed on the exterior of each Circuit City store that has a Verizon Wireless store inside.
Verizon Wireless has a nationwide wireless voice and data network used by over 40 million customers. Headquartered in Bedminster, N.J., Verizon Wireless is a joint venture of Verizon Communications and Vodafone.
