Customers using Currys, PC World and Carphone Warehouse websites will be guided to the right place to buy from the whole range that we have to offer together – from a toaster to the latest smartphone. Our offices now proudly show our new combined identity and up and down the country we are delivering a clear message to our teams and to our customers: We are one.”
