Learn and explore as Three expands Discovery Store programme


Three, the UK’s most reliable phone network* is proud to announce that it has extended its Discovery programme. With new Discovery stores opening in Swansea and Islington, the two additions are the second and third to open since Three launched the concept design for people to explore and learn about all things tech.

Three’s Discovery spaces are dedicated to help people explore mobile technology and get the best from their devices, whether it be social media, photography or troubleshooting clinics. A wide range of free, fun and interactive sessions will be available for all customers including schools, community groups and local businesses.

The Discovery spaces are kitted out with state of the art devices, including the latest iPads and Android tablets for people to check out. There will also be Apple TVs and Chromecastes for film and TV fans to really bring the magic of Discovery to life in a fun and engaging way.

Paula Cave, director of retail and indirect channels at Three says: “We’re really excited to be adding new areas to our Discovery Programme. Whether you want to learn about how to get to grips with a new device, how to build your business online or need advice on how to start a blog, Three’s Discovery Programme has the answer and we couldn’t be prouder to have them as part of our offering.”

Three will be a selection of sessions running at each of the stores suitable for all ages. In order to keep customers interested and inspired, Three will host photography sessions, hints and tips on becoming a blogger, tricks of the trade from an established journalist and even a class on teaching grandparents how to use the latest tech!
