Welcome to Sainsbury’s Help Centre

Phone Shop Closure

Following a review of how to best serve our customers in the Telecoms market, we recently announced an exciting partnership with EE, the UK’s largest mobile phone network. This builds on a successful trial partnership which is currently underway at Argos, where EE have opened 21 in-store concessions, which are run by EE colleagues selling EE products and plans. As a result of our new partnership our existing Phone Shop business has now closed, with 16 of the shops shortly reopening as EE concessions.
