Oklahoma City, Okla. (PRWEB) March 19, 2008
For 20 years, PaceButler Corporation has been a huge force in the recycling industry, whether it was purchasing and selling used computer equipment, or, more recently, used cell phones, which came in response to the rapidly growing wireless industry where millions of cell phones are being discarded in landfills each year.
But now the Oklahoma-based company has expanded into new territory with a store opening in Oklahoma City--a store dedicated exclusively to buying old cell phones on the spot.
Traditionally, PaceButler has been an Internet and phone-based company with people going online to http://www.pacebutler.com to view a price list and then printing a prepaid shipping label to send in their unwanted cell phones via Fed Ex to PaceButler, who then issue a check within four business days after receiving the phones. It's already a simple, fast and convenient way to get money for unneeded phones, but with the emergence of a store, PaceButler will make the process easier than ever.
The new PaceButler store, located at 10960 N. May Ave., Oklahoma City, Okla., has scheduled its grand opening for March 18. The store will have a cell phone auditor onsite to inspect the phones people bring in and to determine that they qualify for purchase (the phone must be in working order with no major damages, otherwise, it will simply be recycled at no charge to the individual). Individuals will receive a check for the value of their cell phones immediately--no waiting. There will also be cell phone fundraising kits available to organizations who want to start a cell phone drive, free of charge. It's the first store of its kind.
"If this location does well, we will branch out and open more and more," said Tom Pace, CEO and founder of PaceButler Corporation.
Nearly 200 million Americans own cell phones, with about 500,000 people replacing old cell phones with new ones each day. Rough estimates indicate there are more than 130 million used wireless phones discarded every year.
PaceButler Corporation offers a solution to the cell phone crisis in the United States. Their aim is to make it easy and profitable for all people to recycle used cell phones. With their convenient and easy-to-use Web site already available, they've made the process fast and simple. With the advent of a PaceButler store, the sky is the limit when it comes to how many people can benefit by using PaceButler's services.
