Curry’s can trace its history all the way back to 1884 when it was founded in Leicester by
Henry Curry. The business originally sold telephones built by Mr. Curry. Currys expanded into selling toys, bikes and electrical products and now there are now 295 Currys superstores and around 80 Currys high street stores.
Curry’s gradually moved out of the high street and into out of town retail parks which afforded a lot more floor space to display a much greater range of products.
Dixons officially merged the businesses and dropped the Dixons name.
The Dixons Carphone group also own PC World, and there are a number of combined Curry’s PC World stores.
