In light of the current economic climate, it's refreshing to hear that it's not all doom and gloom. Vodafone is nearing completion of opening up the 50 new stores they announced back in September 2008, which will bring their total number of UK stores to 400.
Forty new stores have already been opened with an additional 10 opening in the coming weeks. The operator claims that the new stores will create 200 advisor roles helping customers receive more face to face assistance when shopping for handsets, laptops or tariff deals.
