Pupils from Nene Infants School had the honour of opening the new ‘2 in 1’ Currys & PC World superstore in Wisbech on Friday.
Natalia (6) was the winner of a creative poster competition based on technology and she also unveiled her winning 60 x 40 inch design at the opening.
The extensive store refurbishment has created 10 new jobs at the Belgrave Retail Park site. The 10,500 square feet superstore will provide the best of both brands under one roof.
The superstore will showcase 5,000 products including a huge selection of HD and 3D TVs, digital cameras and MP3/4 players from top brands, as well as a massive line-up of computing tablets and netbooks, laptops and desktop PCs, and ‘built in’ kitchen appliances.
There will also be a number of interactive ‘demo tables’ giving customers a hands-on shopping experience – allowing them to pick up, turn on and test out a wide range of products from premium brands such as Samsung and Sony.
Currys & PC World Wisbech will feature a new KNOWHOW service bar, giving shoppers expert technical advice and support on-site. A PC World Business centre will be introduced at the store to give advice and support to help local companies grow.
Other services will include the award-winning ‘WEEE recycling scheme’ and ‘Order & Collect’, where goods can be easily reserved online for collection in-store.
Branch manager Neil Winter said: “This will be the biggest electrical shopping destination in Wisbech and customers will be greeted by an exciting, fun and interactive in-store experience where they can test out and play with products and get impartial advice from store colleagues.”
