Walgreens, Sprint to open additional Sprint Express locations

BY DSN STAFF

Walgreens and Sprint are expanding their joint partnership, which was announced earlier this year.

The companies announced that they will be opening an additional 80 locations of Sprint Express at Walgreens stores, within the Chicago and Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan areas.

“Our customers who have visited the existing Sprint Express test locations in Gainesville, Florida and in the Chicagoland area, are telling us that they really like the convenience of being able to meet their mobile phone needs, while shopping at Walgreens,” Richard Ashworth, Walgreens president of operations, said. “We’re pleased to expand our collaboration, and moving forward, together with Sprint, we are exploring other mobile wireless initiatives as we collectively focus on enhancing what Walgreens customers want in this new digital world.”

Services within the locations include advice on mobile products and accessories; support, access and education on the Walgreens app; and wireless services available to anyone via a curated postpaid and prepaid service options through Assurance Wireless.

“Walgreens and Sprint have an exceptional relationship,” Dow Draper, Sprint’s chief commercial officer, said. “By expanding our Sprint Express locations we’re increasing Sprint’s presence in locations that are often a daily destination for consumers. This makes it easy and convenient for them to interact with us. We’re also excited to offer the Walgreens family of employees exciting, exclusive offers and explore other opportunities to reward Walgreens customers.”

In addition, Sprint also is introducing exclusive wireless saving for Walgreens’ 250,000 employees and their families. Additional details on specific store locations and product service offerings are to be announced at a later date, the companies said.
