Prepaid mobile service provider Cricket Wireless is moving into a 1,000-square-foot retail unit in downtown Jamaica, according to Kalmon Dolgin Affiliates, which marketed the space.

The company will establish its new branch in the building at 166-34 Jamaica Ave. between Merrick Boulevard and 168th Street, which is currently occupied by a McDonald’s and Pay-O-Matic.

Cricket Wireless, which became a subsidiary of AT&T after the cell service giant bought Leap Wireless for nearly $1.2 billion earlier this year, now has more than a dozen authorized locations around the New York metropolitan area, including a number of branches in Queens.
