Shhh. The neighbours are sleeping.
Shop-fitters were preparing Vodafone’s first shop in Wembley at 1am in the early hours this morning. Recently, complaints were made by residents about noise at night but I’m happy to say the shop-fitters were silent and stealth in their approach.
Opening at the London Designer Outlet, Vodafone plan to create 1400 new jobs this year with Wembley as one of the first locations. Vodafone said they will open 150 new stores, soon to appear in the likes of Notting Hill, Fulham, Illford & Walthamstow.
The telecom giant’s confidence in brick and mortar is fueled by consumer trends such as click and collect, where you buy online and can pick up in a conveniently located shop.
In the past, residents have blogged often about their mobile phone coverage, seeking advice on the best network. The general consensus was that residents on Vodafone and O2 experienced poor reception but anyone using T-Mobile (now known as EE) were generally happy.
Are you a Vodafone customer in Wembley? What’s your coverage like around here?
