SAN DIEGO, Sept. 05, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Cricket Communications, a leading provider of innovative and value-driven wireless services, and BizBox, the inventor of “branded box” mobilized structures, today announced the first wireless carrier mobile retail store experience of its kind. Cricket’s BizBox will travel throughout its West Area to festivals and other venues transforming from a mobile box into an interactive retail store experience in just minutes taking its products and no-contract services directly to consumers in any city at any time.
“Cricket is embracing this cutting edge retail concept of an interactive, mobile environment that provides another way to share and enhance our brand,” said Annette Jacobs, president west area for Cricket. “Our goal is to bring the excitement of our value-rich, no-contract products and services to the consumer in fun and innovative ways.

Lucky Cricket customers will get the full experience when they visit the BizBox at various events handing out giveaways and doing demonstrations on MUVE Music throughout Cricket’s west regional area. Cricket will unveil its new BizBox to employees on Friday, September 7(th) at its operational headquarters in Denver, Colorado (Greenwood Village).
