The UK is a hugely important market for us, and we’re pleased to be able to offer customers the opportunity to pick up new technology in-store, in addition to a superior customer service experience. As well as being a key milestone for Huawei in the UK, we’re excited that this will open up more jobs to Stratford residents and help support the British economy.”
