Wireless officially launch their new website www.wirelessphones.ie and their flagship store in Athlone today. Wireless is an Irish-owned company with one ambition to provide people with graded sim smartphones and tablets at a price everyone can afford.
Wireless Managing Directors, twins John & Michael Conway, and the Wireless team have been working on the project in the backgrouond for several months. The two already have a successful pre-existing repair company in the midlands called ‘Fix My i’ with two shops based in Mullingar and Tullamore. They employ 10 staff members between the two shops. Alongside the opening of the new flagship store in Athlone, the other shops in Tullamore and Mullingar will be rebranded as ‘Wireless’ with Fix My i still existing in the background of the business.
John says: “Wireless was pretty simple really. I opened a repair shop called Fix My i to repair broken smartphones and tablets in 2013. That repair shop did really well. My twin brother Mike came home from Australia and we brainstormed how we could expand the business. We started selling refurbished and repaired devices as good as new for a fraction of the cost of a brand new model. Turns out this was pretty lucrative. Athlone seemed like the perfect opportunity to test out this new flagship store. Our location on Sean Costello street is perfect right between the two shopping centres opposite Eddie Rockets. We’ve also created a partnership with AIT allowing us to welcome thousands of students – and of course we have discounts!”
The twins have an array of special guests in store today including iRadio’s Ray Shah and the iRadio Opel Adams iTeam, the GAA funny man and Facebook sensation Rory O’Connor of Rory’s Stories and a representative from Otterbox Ireland. Promised to be a fun-filled, action packed day with plenty of giveaways, Wireless are open from 12 noon to 8pm on today.
