Wawa Partners with GTS Prepaid

07/09/2002
WAWA, Pa. -- Wawa Inc. has signed an agreement with GTS Prepaid Inc. (GTS) to provide the 540-store chain with an extensive line of prepaid telecom products and services.

Under terms of the deal, GTS will provide all Wawa locations with a full range of prepaid telecom products. These include nationally branded prepaid phone cards, prepaid wireless phones and refill cards, wireless accessories and prepaid Internet.

"GTS had a complete solution that fit our needs," said Barry Bleahan, category manager for Wawa. "We see very strong growth potential in the prepaid sector, especially prepaid wireless. We're confident that partnering with GTS and nationally branded providers will help us achieve our goals."

The agreement includes the placement of point-of-sale-activation (POSA) terminals in every Wawa location, allowing around the clock selling of prepaid products without concern for theft of live product. With POSA, retailers stock blank cards in a convenient and prominent location. The cards can only be activated through the POSA terminal.
