Virgin Media have revealed plans to open more high street stores around the country, increasing the number of stores from 27 to 70.
Stores were opened recently in Leicester, Leeds, Plymouth, Bromley and Birmingham and two more are expected soon in London. when the next phase begins.
Last month Virgin announced plans to expand its cable broadband, phone and TV network to cover 500,000 new homes and businesses over the next few years.
Virgin plan to introduce ‘retail lite’ sites, which are shops in prominent positions in shopping centres, without the need for walls. Sites confirmed so far include The Victoria Centre in Nottingham, Meadowhall in Sheffield, and The Ropewalk Centre in Nuneaton.
Each store will create local jobs, with staff receiving intensive training giving them valuable communication skills and product knowledge.
