CDiscount about to get a whole lot bigger in the UK
If you’re a regular on HotUKDeals, you’ll know that one of the most frequently occurring names that crops up as a purveyor of bargains is CDiscount. Now it looks like they’re about to get a hell of a lot bigger, with a full-on UK launch due next month.
They’re part of the French retail giants Casino Group, who have 10,000 stores worldwide and in France, the long-established CDiscount is just behind Amazon in the rankings. It seems as though they’ve been dipping their Gallic toe into the UK online retail market over the past few months gearing up for an imminent full assault.
At the moment in the UK, they’re specialising in hi-tech, homewares and fashion, but take a quick peek at their French site and you’ll see that there’s a whole lot more to come from CDiscount, with the likes of Tesco, Amazon and DSGi’s brands in their sights. Childrenswear, toys, gardening and health and beauty products are among the ranges they'll be adding as the next 12 months sees rapid expansion.
So, what impressions have you had of CDiscount in the UK so far? Maybe you’ve used their French site in the past? What do you make of their 0% interest three-month payment plan for goods over £75? Will their arrival see a major sea change in online retail in the UK? Will Ken and Deirdre survive Ken’s latest infidelity or is it curtains for Corrie’s veteran couple? What REALLY happened to Jesus after the resurrection? Speak to us damn you.
