Headquartered in Acton, Currys was founded by Henry Curry in 1884. Currys was far different from how it began to what it is today. In the beginning, Henry Curry built and sold bicycles. His bicycle shop grew and later moved from his first shop in Painter Street to Belgrave Gate. In 1897, Henry Curry went into partnership with his sons calling his company, H. Curry & Sons. During the transition, H. Curry & Sons decided to start selling other goods in addition to bicycles in their shop. Goods included toys, gramophones, and radios. In 1932, Currys stopped their manufacturing and production of bicycles and turned their focus on just retailing bicycles and other goods at their shop until the 1960s. It was later between the late 1960s to early 1980s that Currys had expanded and started selling televisions and home appliances to its consumers.

In 1984, Dixons Carphone acquired Currys but kept their name. Dixons Carphone is an electrical and telecommunications retailer. With the acquisition and merger, Currys is now a major retailer of digital, electronic goods, and home appliances. For those looking to telephone Currys, their customer service contact number is 0344 561 1234. For those who prefer to write Currys, their address is PO Box 1687 Sheffield S2 5YA.

In today’s world, there are many options and features to choose from when buying a washing machine. Everyone needs it because it saves time. Their buying guide offers insights on how to choose the right washing machine for your needs. It begins with a brief overview of the “standard features” to consider when buying a washing machine. Capacity, noise level, and energy rating are only a few factors to consider that are mentioned. It moves on to talk about capacity and how much is sufficient for a user’s needs. It says washing machine capacities range from 5 to 13 kilograms. It then says that generally “5 t-shirts equate to 1 kilogram”. Then says a 5-kilogram capacity washer will wash “25 t-shirts” and a 10-kilogram capacity washer can wash up to “50 t-shirts”. It then goes on to recommend larger capacity washers as they are also capable of washing sheets, blankets, and comforters.

Next, the guide also talks about the noise level. The noise level measurement refers to the decibels the machine emits during its wash and spin cycles. The guide then recommends purchasing newer model washers with “new technology” to reduce noise.

Further down the guide, it talks about energy efficient washers. The guide indicates ratings start from A to A+++. A+++ being the most energy efficient rating. Factors like run time and water usage contribute to the washing machine’s rating.
