Mobile phone provider EE has announced plans to create 400 new jobs as it plans to roll out approximately 100 new concession outlets. The announcement follows the company's deal with Sainsbury's in 2016 and means that EE will dramatically increase its presence in Argos and Sainsbury's stores. The company has decided to expand its coverage, but also believes that customers prefer the face to face service, which the concessions stores will be able to supply. It is anticipated that the 100 new concessions stores will be in place by 2019.
