The former Phones 4U store in Ely will reopen as a Vodafone outlet from Thursday.

The move will save four jobs, which were put at risk of redundancy when Phones 4U entered administration, in September.

The company moved into High Street in November 2013

The Ely store is one of the 139 Phones 4U stores Vodafone acquired as part of the companies administration process, with 850 former Phones4U also taken on.

A spokesman for Vodafone said: “The opening of the Ely store forms part of Vodafone’s plans to invest £1 billion in 2014 in the networks and services relied upon by its more than 19 million UK customers.”
