Page Plus signs distribution deal with Circle K – USA

Page Plus, operating on the Verizon Wireless network, has entered into a distribution agreement with Circle K for the sale of Page Plus prepaid phones and service plans. The new addition is seen as a significant move for the company as Circle K is one of the largest nationwide chains of convenience stores.

Prior to the deal, Page Plus used to distribute its offerings through independent stores and regional convenience store chains. The rollout will take place in Arizona and Florida by the end of this month, followed by a nationwide rollout to over 2,000 stores.

Commenting on the agreement, Dean McDowell, Chief Financial Officer of Page Plus, said: “We are extremely excited to partner with Circle K. They have an excellent reputation for being one of North America's most popular and successful convenience stores. This partnership will really help us meet the increased demand we are seeing for our prepaid phones and services. In addition, we have recently added some very economical rate plans that bundle large amounts of airtime with large amounts of text messaging. Heavy users are seeing the advantage of these plans and they are creating a lot of demand.”
