Tesco has teamed up with Chinese mobile phone retailer EBT Mobile to open mobile phone stores within its Hymall hypermarkets in China.

EBT Mobile will open seven mobile phone stores in the next few weeks, the first of which will open in a Tesco Hymall store in Shanghai today.

“EBT Mobile will provide Tesco Hymall's customers with a wide choice of mobile telephone products and services, while benefiting from a cost effective roll out of stores within the Tesco Hymall stores,” said Zhang Ge, CEO of EBT Mobile.
