Currys, a British electrical retailer, is located in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland. It is owned by Currys Plc. They sell home electronics and appliances.
Currys began as a retailer of bicycles in 1927. The company expanded its product range and became a major retailer for household electrical products from the 1960s. The company was purchased by Dixons in 1984. All outlets were now under the Currys brand. The business moved away from small shops in towns to bigger out-of-town locations under the Currys PC World name. This combined the operations of Currys and Dixon's PC World into one roof. In 2014, the stores were given Carphone Warehouse departments. All outlets will be rebranded under Currys by October 2021.
Due to the collapses of long-standing rival Comet Group and Maplin, the company is now a category killer in Britain as the country's only major physical electric retailer.
