Only for the brave.

AdvantagesCan get excellent bargains from them.

DisadvantagesExtended warranty mania.

"...... Finally, my views on Currys are not representative of all staff. I worked in three stores in total over a short space of time and met some excellent sales staff who were well informed, listened to customer needs and did not adopt the hard sell. The need to sell warranties is indoctrinated from the top down, and it is sometimes the case of sell warranties or sign on the dole. The aim of this op. is not to slander Currys as a whole, for, indeed, ..." Read review

Currys Always Cutting Service

Advantageslots of stores around, access via the net

DisadvantagesStaff are useless, customer service is worse than useless.

"...were nothing to do with currys (the dixon chain). Via the net there are many- but we prefer a store you can see locally. We are considering returning the machine- but to do that- we are now waiting for head office to call us, my mum has the plumber going over later- but may stop him going- if we hear back regarding a full refund and collection of the new machine. If not- she'll probably let the plumber come, and keep the new machine- but- I warn ..." Read review

Currys Deliveries - NOW try to obtain your purchase

AdvantagesNone whatsoever. Customer Service is a dirty word to Currys staff

DisadvantagesStill waiting for my frige freezer to be delivered

"CURRIES - ELECTRICAL STORE: DELIVERY IS THE PITS - their staff are rude, ignorant, and lack courtesy, compassion and clearly aren’t fit for purpose In February 2009 my husband and I purchased a large fridge freezer, washing machine and cooker from Curries in Merthyr Tydfil, spending a considerable amount of money with them. The fridge freezer itself cost us only a few pennies short of £600.00. Delivery was finally arranged and the delivery people ..." Read review

Lower prices and no stock!

AdvantagesIf products are in stock

DisadvantagesLack of range and products in stock

"I am sure that most people have heard of Curry's, we're all seen the ads. There always lowering prices and I must admit compared to some other outlets their prices are quite reasonable. Customer Service =============== There is a fine line when you enter a store as to how quickly the Sales staff should approach you, too quickly then they are being pushy for commission or if there too slow then you might leave the store. The Curry's staff ..." Read review

Currys is as nice as pilau rice

AdvantagesAffordable and reliable products

DisadvantagesBeware of the interest free monthly repayment scheme

"I have seen Currys stores on the High Street since the 1970s. It seemed the type of store which you would view from outside but not go in. There were never many customers in the store. In the 1980s it had a reputation for selling electrical goods which were priced above average and were not reliable. Dixons took over Currys and things improved. Currys sells a variety of electrical goods eg fridges, cookers, microwave ovens, videos, mobile phones, ..." Read review

Currys probably the worst shop in the world

AdvantagesWill home deliver

DisadvantagesWhere do I start

"...the cooker and will return. Currys on the other hand well they were the exact opposite. It was August 2001 when I went into my local currys to look at washing machines after careful cosideration I decided to purchase a Hotpiont washing machine. The staff in the shop were helpful to a certain extent. I was buying the washing machine for the first time as the others were all second hand. I paid £219.99 for it, and thought that the salesperson(con-artist) ..." Read review

So my hunt for a new fridge freezer begun but it started, in a bigger equally as well known store, found a fridge freezer that met my needs, frost free 4 draw freezer good size fridge £349.00 just before I decided to make the purchase I thought I would nip into Curry's which is situated ..."

Negative Ciao ops but I got some BARGAINS

AdvantagesGood special deals, Helpful staff

DisadvantagesStaff don't have that much knowledge

"...I want it CHEAP. Currys have just the thing - 2 models in fact - for £199. Again, no other store has the same spec cooker at enything like the price. The cheapest same spec (not same model)elsewhere is £50 dearer. When I bought it Curry's staff were very nice. They offered me the extended warranty but didn't try and push it on me when I said I didn't want it (which is more than I can say for my experiences at Comet where sales staff have got quite ..."

CURRYS THE WORST STORE IN THE WORLD

AdvantagesNOT ONE, UTTERLY USELESS STAFF AND POOR PRODUCTS

DisadvantagesPOOR SERVICE, EGAR TO TAKE MONEY AND NOT CARE ABOUT AFTER CARE TO CUSTOMERS

"...not know the answer, but CURRYS the electrical store should be digusted with what they call an "exceptional service". In October 2008 I purchased a KODAK 10.3 mega pixel digital camera, (that was orginally nearly £200.00) in a special offer of £89.99 (it was even advertised on the telly) in my local currys store. As a student i required a good digital camera and so waited for a good offer as i could not afford a high price. When I originally ..." Read review

I was surprised!

AdvantagesGood price and free delivery (this time)

DisadvantagesUnusually for Currys - none

"...best price at my local Currys store. I noticed that they offered 0% finance but this was only on purchases way over what I was going to be paying. As the delivery was extra my partner and I decided t take the freezer away in our car as it would fit easily enough. When we ordered it the assistant told us that they did not keep stock as they had no room and would have to order it and have it delivered direct to us. As we had expressed a wish to take ..."

Not a very hot Curry...

AdvantagesQuite literally everywhere, good stock levels, in-store repair shop, massive financial backing

DisadvantagesLess than expert staff, can't always provide top notch service, can be busy at peak times

"...in the last few years, Currys has started to modernise itself! NB White Goods = Refrigeration, Washing machines, tumble dryers, etc Brown Goods = TVs, Videos, Audio, computers, etc Currys carries more of the white good market, rather than Dixons brown market goods. Of course Currys also carries a whole range of brown goods, but it is the only part of DSG where you can buy white goods. This puts it in competition with stores like Comet and Northern ..."

I got a discount and I didnt even ask.......

Advantagesproduct onsite

Disadvantagesdelivery delays recieving purchase

"As disappointing as Customer Service issues can be I thought that I would tell you of a surprising happy experience that I had with Currys. Currys is an electrical store selling the majority of electrical products from freezers to toasters. The stores are bright and well laid out .They offer products online, and generally they fair well in price, but it is wise to do a price comparison. They generally stock products so that you are able to purchase ..." Read review

Failing To Curry Favour

AdvantagesLots of demo stock for "hands-on" feel

DisadvantagesNot backed up with real stock, even in the warehouse-sized stores

"...(for the DVD player) and Currys (for the rest) to see what they were “giving away” in the New Year. First stop, Richer Sounds in West Ealing. Well, sorry Julian old chap, but you cut yourself out of the loop completely by being closed on New Year’s Day, and when a lad’s got “management permission” to go spend a few dollars, he’s not going to hang around to see if it’s true what they say about this stuff burning holes in pockets. So, into the ..." Read review

Feeling hot hot hot

AdvantagesGood customer service, and a manager that does keep his word

DisadvantagesQuite shoddy products

"...competitive stores in their field. Plymouth’s Currys superstore is located just off the A38. It is quite vast and easy to find. Our elderly cooker had roasted its last chicken long ago, and we were looking for new one, when we were lured to Curry’s. Large and airy, with comprehensive displays, I was able to look around everything with no advances from pushy salespersons. “Can’t go wrong here I thought”. I ..." Read review
