Dixons Carphone are set to close 134 stores nationwide
Dixons Carphone are getting ready to combine all of their remaining Currys and PC World stores together and add a Carphone Warehouse branch into every store during the combination process.
As a result of merging PC World and Currys stores together there will be 134 stores closed nationwide.
Group CEO Seb James has said, "We are very confident that the impact on sales and colleague numbers will be neutral or better."
"When we build one beautiful, refitted new 3-in-1 superstore and we have one great Carphone Warehouse in town… sales go up and also we end up usually needing more colleagues to work on the shop floor."
According to James around £50 million will be invested into refitting the new stores with an additional £70 million being set aside to cover shop closures.
