According to a recent Wave7 report, over 1,100 prepaid stores have closed between November and June. The number consists of stores across brands, including AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon, Boost Mobile, Cricket Wireless, and Metro by T-Mobile.
In addition, many carrier-owned stores that shut down during the pandemic, have since reopened.
In addition, this does not include the fact that many Sprint stores have permanently closed as part of the merger. Last year, there was around 3,835 Sprint-owned stores. By June, the number was 3,300. And as August 2nd gets closer, it’s likely that there could be zero Sprint stores left when the brand is retired on that date.
