Optie1 neemt Phone House over? Dit is hetzelfde als de buurtsuper die Albert Heijn over neemt. En dan ook nog met een nieuwe BV zonder kapitaal. Volgens de geruchten ging het al langer niet goed met de Phone House Nederland. Carphone zal zelf wel niet willen desinvesteren aangezien dit veel geld kost met zoveel winkels, huurcontracten en medewerkers. Hebben ze in Relevant Holdings wel iemand gevonden die het kan proberen zonder al teveel risico zelf te nemen. Ook jammer voor de franchisers die altijd hard voor hun eigen winkels hebben gewerkt, worden mooi meegesleept in een avontuur waar je zelf geen controle over hebt.
