Consumer Cellular, Inc. is expanding its retail footprint in Sears stores nationwide for the third time since the partnership began in 2011. The retail expansion begins in May and includes a new, larger display with additional smartphone offerings, as well as expanded color options for most devices.

Additional phones available at the expanded Sears display include the Huawei Vision and the LG Escape, rounding out a diverse device assortment including both senior-friendly cellphones and smartphones.

The Envoy is the device designed expressly for Consumer Cellular, created with customer preferences in mind. Working with manufacturing partner Huawei, Consumer Cellular set out to produce a stylish flip phone that is easy to learn and use, while also providing key convenience and functionality features for optimal on-the-go connectivity. The Envoy, available in red or black, offers text messaging, email, Internet and an MP3 music player in a simple-to-use flip phone. The phone has familiar touchpad keys for easy typing and its compact size and soft-touch coating allows for simple handling and stowing. The Envoy is sold for $35.
