Following the continued devastation the retail sector is experiencing as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Dixons Carphone has announced plans to cut 800 jobs.

Dixons Carphone had already made redundancies before lockdown, when it closed its Carphone Warehouse stores, and now the owner of Currys PC World is set to make further cuts. Following the closure of its 531 Carphone Warehouse shops earlier in the year, the company shifted mobile phone sales into its Currys PC World stores.

Chief Operating Officer Mark Allsop said: “We’ll do everything possible to look after those colleagues we can’t find new roles for, financially and otherwise.”
