1986 Currys Christmas Advert

Currys is an electrical retailer in the United Kingdom and Ireland and is owned by Dixons Retail plc. It specialises in selling home electronics and household appliances, with 295 superstores and 73 high street stores.

Currently the store which has the highest turnover is in Cribbs Causeway, Bristol. Other major stores are located in Wednesbury (north of Birmingham, just off Junction 9 of the M6), Fosse Park, Leicester, Teesside Park (Stockton-on-Tees), Gateshead, New Malden and Croydon.

In April 2006, it was announced that Dixons stores (except in Ireland) would be rebranded as “Currys.digital”, taking the total to 550 stores. In Ireland, the Currys brand continued to be only used for large-format stores, with Dixons retained on the main streets. However, in August 2008, the Dixons stores inIreland were rebranded as Currys,  similar to the UK move, but without the “.digital” suffix and with a new Currys logo.

Some stores in the UK are dual branded with the PC World name.
