    smart arrse :-D

    Littlewoods allow you to open an account and buy things on Credit. I think with Direct you have to pay the whole amount straight away. :thumbsup:

    Littlewoods you don't pay P&P, Littlewoods Direct you do P&P.

    You can have accounts of both (as i do!) HTH

    PC World is also part of the same group. We bought a DS Lite bundle from Currys, but one of the games was out of stock, so they called next door to PC W and we showed our receipt and collected it from there.

    why dont they operate under one name? is it because its too much effort to change all the names on the stores? I dont really see an advantage :?

    ....and the same **** service. :roll:

    Yeah

    Currys and PC world and now 'Tech Guys' are all owned by Dixons DSG [I think]

    They keep the different names because they all do different things.

    Currys sells a wide range of electricals.
    PC World sell only computing and a very slim range of other things
    Tech guys fix pcs etc. and sell a few accessories.

    Dixons is now an online shop only - you wont see a dixons in your towns anymore - old dixons shops go by the name of Currys.Digital

    Retail/Superstore of Currys names stay the same.

    Plus, if you dont like one store for any reason then you will still use the others, so they dont completely lose your custom
