From The BBC:
The owner of Currys and PC World, DSG International, has said sales fell by less-than-expected during summer, a sign consumers may be spending again.Sales at its stores that have been open at least one year fell 6% in the 16 weeks to 22 August, less than the 7% to 11% that analysts had forecast. “We remain cautious about the economic outlook,” DSG said, but added it was an “encouraging” period. DSG also sold its eight Electro World stores in Poland for 1 euro. Same-store electrical sales in the UK fell 14%, but the group was lifted by strong sales in the Nordic countries and its revamped stores in Italy. In addition to Currys and PC World, DSG owns Elkjop in the Nordic region and UniEuro in Italy….
