I thought they dropped it because of the bad trading name that it had become. It seems silly to revert to it again, or do they suppose people have short memories?

'or do they suppose people have short memories?'..of course people do, just observe at any General Election or major sporting event.

Hello.

I remember Dixons at Wood Green in London back in the days of hi-fi cassette players. The wow and flutter were so bad I had to take the player back more times than I could ever remember. Each time it came back supposedly repaired.Each time I got it home it hadn't. Needless to say I never touched Dixons shops ever again after this now some 30-odd years ago. Pass the meds! I've had a bout of deja vu!

Now if it were Golden Wonder.....

How odd the Dixons store in our local town has never gone away and is still trading.

Dixons! - anyone else remember their graphic Equalisers with all those sliders to fiddle about with? Wish I still had mine!

Hello.

the hick....Oh yes I remember graphic equalisers and sliders to fiddle around with to get the best sound. Strangely, my Asus Xonar soundcard and Winamp Pro have exactly the same thing....but this time on a screen!

Bring back 8 track, metal c90 cassettes and Betamax!

The name may have disappeared from the high street but they have always had an online presence

i liked the name Dixons better than Curry's. And remember the old high street dixons many ears ago what a classic, staff were more friendlier, but staff in curry's sounds like a curry house
