Justice for Gemmel

Stellar business, nonpareil

Dixons, PC World and Carphone Warehouse to disappear in Currys rebrand

The retailer has much more than doubled its on-line business through the pandemic pursuing a boom in laptop income as much more people perform from home.

Alex Baldock, main government, said: “We want the customer to associate Currys with all the things to do with technological innovation.”

The Currys name will appear on much more than 300 internet sites, thirteen,000 personnel uniforms and much more than 300 supply vans after the rebrand is completed.

Dixons Carphone will also improve its name to Currys plc on the London stock market after its once-a-year shareholder assembly in September.

Henry Curry launched Curry Cycle, a bicycle-setting up business, in Leicester in 1884 and later on branched into gramophones, toys and radios. It was renamed Currys and floated on the stock market in 1927. A decade later on, Charles Kalms opened the first Dixons photography studio in Southend. The two merged in 1984 after Currys was acquired by Dixons Retail.

The transfer arrives after Reckitt Benckiser rebranded as Reckitt in March and Standard Lifetime Aberdeen modified its name to Abrdn very last month.
