What’s the Future of Electrical Retailers as Comet Finally Shuts

The Future of Electrical Retailers

So Comet has finally closed. It has been painful watching another of our electrical retailers slowly dying over the last few months and they will certainly be missed by us here at voucherfor. How many more will topple before thing get better? No doubt there will be yet another enquiry at a cost of ‘x’ millions to determine why the tax payer has to pay out ‘y’ millions instead of looking how our government can actually help, but that’s another story for another blog, probably on another site! It is sad that it has happened at this time of year, a lot of Christmases ruined!

My initial concern was that with the downfall of Comet this would leave the biggest retailer of electrical appliances and electronic appliances, Currys / PC World, with a virtual monopoly. However it is good to see that we are still getting plenty of voucher codes from both Currys and PC World. I did have concerns that these would dry up once it became unlikely that a takeover would happen.

On the positive side for our shoppers there are still more electrical retailers out there than most people probably realise which should keep the sector competitive. Check out our electronics and appliances category on our main site to find out who they are. Also remember that most major supermarkets and general retailers such as Argos all stock a good range of electrical and electronic appliances. There are also many online specialist electrical retailers such as Ebuyer to help keep that downward pressure on prices and get the best deals for consumers.

So the future still looks bright, but we might just have to dig a bit deeper to find what we are looking for. There are still plenty of retailers offering appliances and electronics just not as many with them all in the one place. We will keep on working to try and find you the best deals so keep checking back.
