Currys to revamp 65 stores

Currys has announced that it plans to transform 65 stores across the UK and Ireland to improve the customer experience.

Shops in Aberdeen, Bristol and Grantham are among the first to undergo the refit, which will see around 90 per cent of the space changed to make them more navigable and showcase a wider range of the latest technology.

The electronics retailer said the revamp will allow it to display increased ranges in several categories, including across its TV and computing ranges.

The refitted stores will also include a more efficient in-store mobile area and improvements to staff areas to support employees.

Currys said the refit will use recycled fixtures and fittings from The ARC, which recovers shop fixtures and fittings so that they can be reused.

The retailer added that the revamp will continue throughout 2025.

“We're committed to our omnichannel offering, and know our customers love our stores and our tech experts,” said Matthew Speight, director of stores at Currys. “Investing in our retail fundamentals is critical to delivering value for our customers, and in particular, improving our store layouts and growing in-store ranges really excites me.”

Earlier this week, Currys reported a return to sales growth following a drop in revenue over the festive period. In a trading update, it said that sales grew by two per cent in the 16 weeks to 27 April.
