The Phone House, as it’s called in some other territories, makes much more sense in the modern world.

To me, it feels like it needs an apostrophe. It looks wrong without one.

I'm devastated to see the Carphone Warehouse disappear, as I live my life following the values of the Carphone Warehouse.

You don't see Dax much these days. Back in the early 2000's it seemed to be everywhere.

Always thought Currys PC World was a mouthful, right next to the impending DiscoveryWarnerMedia (working title) and UKTVG2. I think the "PC World" brand death was expected, even back in 2010 when they merged.

I liked Knowhow as a brand. I think they'll have a job to do to get the message across - I stil think of PC World as the go-to place to buy a computer, but Currys - or even Dixons - for a brown/white good. And even now don't we all remember "Where in the world? PC World."

Some of us are old enough to only associate Currys with buying a new bicycle.

Looks like this rebrand has begun. The Currys PC World brand had been replaced. Carphone Warehouse displays ‘becoming Currys’ next to the logo. The Dixons Carphone logo hasn’t been swapped out on that website, but elsewhere on it just refers to ‘Currys’.

Edit: just noticed ‘Currys Mobile’, which I assume didn’t exist before and is just the replacement of the Carphone Brand which still seems to be online also.

Ok.

My nearest branch got the makeover a few weeks ago:
