Gogglebox Stars Open New Currys Megastore in Brighton

Stephen Webb and Chris Steed of Gogglebox fame join bumper line up of appearances and events to celebrate opening of brand new megastore at 274 Old Shoreham Road, Hove BN3 7EG

NEXT Friday, 9th September, the UK’s leading electrical retailer opens its new Brighton & Hove mega store, bringing all three brands – Currys, PC World and Carphone Warehouse – under one roof.

The store will be opened by local girl, three-and-a-half-year-old Amelia, who suffers from long-term spastic diplegia cerebral palsy and is raising money for a life altering operation and the resulting intensive rehabilitation and physiotherapy. The Brighton store team has already raised £1000 to support her cause and will continue to support moving forwards.

The next day, on Saturday 10th September, on hand to help celebrate the opening of the state of the art TV department, will be Brighton residents and best friends Stephen Webb and Chris Steed who rose to fame on the television series Gogglebox. The duo will participate in an exclusive ribbon cutting ceremony taking place in the store on Saturday 10th September at 9.30am.

Having been on the show since its inception in 2012, Stephen and Chris quickly became viewer favourites thanks to their hilarious and catty responses while watching the week’s TV highlights on the show. The duo, who are both professional hairdressers, are lovers of television and often spend their time in Chris’ house in front of his television catching up on their favourite shows together.

Amelia, Stephen and Chris’ appearances are part of a weekend of exclusive big brand offers, running from 9th – 12th September, including:

  • £20 off iPads for 50 customers
  • £50 off MacBooks for 50 customers
  • £280 off LG 43” Smart 4K TV for 30 customers
  • £30 off Fitbit Charge HR for 100 customers
  • Half price Dyson V6 for 30 customers
  • £100 gift card on all monthly contracts for 100 customers
  • £100 off when you spend over £500 on two or more large kitchen appliances
  • Free installation when you spend over £500 on large kitchen appliances

The store will feature a 40,000 sq ft area and will be open Monday – Friday 9am – 8pm, Saturdays 9am – 7pm and Sundays 10.30am – 4.30pm. It has created 15 brand new job opportunities.

Matt Ham, Store Director, of the new Brighton megastore, says: “We’re absolutely delighted to have little Amelia join us to officially open our bigger and better megastore, and Stephen and Chris on hand to help showcase the new state of the art TV department. They know more than anyone the importance of having a fantastic TV to watch all of your favourite programmes on in crystal quality and high definition. It’s set to be an exciting weekend ahead with plenty of offers to enjoy so I look forward to seeing everyone down there.”
