Tesco to trial Currys PC World shops in big stores

By Ben Woods

Supermarket giant Tesco has struck a deal with Dixons Carphone to begin trialling Currys PC World concessions in its biggest stores.

The UK's largest grocer said the partnership would lead to two Currys PC World outlets opening in Tesco Extra stores, as it looks to offer "the best possible range of services".

The first concession is slated to open in July at the Tesco Extra store in Milton Keynes, with a second being launched in August at the Weston Favell Extra store in Northampton.

The moves comes after rival Sainsbury's delved further into the electrical goods market, when it sealed a £1.4bn takeover of Argos owner Home Retail Group last year.

Matt Davies, UK chief executive of Tesco, speaking about the move, said: "We're always looking at ways to offer our customers the best possible range of services in our stores.

"We think this is a winning combination for customers and look forward to opening the first outlet in our Milton Keynes store in July."
