Currys is a British electrical retailer operating in the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland, owned by Currys plc and selling home electronics and home appliances.
Established as a bicycle retailer in 1927, Currys expanded the range of goods sold and from the 1960s became a major retailer of household electrical items. In 1984 the company was bought by rival retailer Dixons, and the Currys brand was used for all outlets of the combined company. From 2008, the business turned away from shops in town centres to larger out-of-town stores under the Currys PC World brand, combining the operations of Currys with Dixon's PC World under one roof; after the formation of Dixons Carphone in 2014, the stores gained Carphone Warehouse departments. By October 2021, all outlets will be rebranded as Currys.
The company is a category killer in the United Kingdom as its only major physical electrical retailer, this mainly due to the collapse of long-time rival Comet Group in 2012, and Maplin in 2018.
