Franchisees in retailer’s stores now able to order a range of earphones, batteries and USB cables from accessories distributor
Fonehouse has signed a deal with mobile supplier Activ8 Distribution through which its 49 stores across the UK will be provided with mobile phone accessories by the distributor.
The products that will be supplied include a range of smartphone cases exclusive to Fonehouse, alongside Activ8’s own brands Covert, Shocksock and Terrapin. In addition to cases, Activ8 will supply Fonehouse with earphones, batteries and USB cables.
Fonehouse shops now have access to an online ordering portal built by the distributor, with products arriving in store within 48 hours. All items will be boxed in Fonehouse-branded packaging. Fonehouse also stocks accessories supplied by Elite Mobile.
Fonehouse logistics and procurement manager Lee Skinner said: “Working in partnership with Activ8 was a complete no-brainer. The high level of service, quality and product range they bring to the table completely blows other competition out of the water. They stay competitive yet innovative, and working in partnership rather than being dictated to means this integration of brands will have an exciting future ahead of it.”
Activ8 key account manager Martin Sharp added: “The great news for customers is that they will now be able to purchase Activ8 mobile accessories in all Fonehouse stores. We are looking forward to what is shaping up to be a long and successful partnership together.”
