A four-week lockdown has been introduced in England, and will be in force from November 5 until December 2. Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced the second lockdown last weekend in a bid to slow down the spread of COVID-19 in England.
Is Currys open during lockdown?
From November 5 until December 2, Currys will close all its stores.
However, you will be able to order from Currys online and pick up your items from stores using the order and collect service.
To do this, use Curry’s order and collect option when you check out.
You can pick up your orders from the store without leaving your car as Currys employees will pop everything into your boot.
If you don’t have a car you can select the walk up option instead.
In an announcement this week it said: “Currys PC World stores (with Carphone Warehouse shops inside) must again close their doors for normal shopping.
“But this time we’ll be able to safely allow you to order online and collect from store, with “zero-contact” Order & Collect.
“This means you can pick up from most stores without getting out of your car (just pop open your boot).”
Ahead of lockdown, Currys extended its opening hours across England.
Mark Allsop, chief operating officer at Currys PC World, said earlier this week: “Whilst we expect footfall to increase between now and Thursday, our extended opening hours will help ease the busy periods in store.
“From Thursday (November 5) we will support our customer tech needs through 24/7 online, SHOPLIVE and ‘Zero Contact’ Order & Collect.

“This, means we are able to welcome customers into our stores until the full nationwide lockdown begins and continue to support them through November.”
He added: “Access to home tech is absolutely vital – from white goods, kettles and toasters through to computing equipment.
“The first lockdown led to unprecedented demand for consumer electronics, including items such as home office equipment, enabling Brits to work effectively and comfortably from home.
“We are expecting similar demand this time round.”
The second lockdown comes at and inconvenient time for retailers, with both Black Friday and Christmas sales now at risk.
Curry has launched an extended returns policy for orders made for Christmas.
Orders made between October 29 and December 24 can be return up to January 14, 2021.
