Currys is back in Black in Birmingham, but what is it?
"An exciting new shopping experience is coming to Birmingham," says the mysterious email sent to subscribers on the Currys mailing list.
"That'll be a first," cries Birmingham.
There's no other information available as to what Dixons Retail are up to, and we can't find any information online. The only clue is a graphic that may or may not suggest the Bullring is involved. Will Black signify a belated Thanksgiving sale, the colour of a Currys employee's wilted soul - or a new upscale gadget store, which would be our best guess?
The email promises we'll find out in 48 hours - so on Saturday, then. Whistleblowers, please point your emails to [email protected]

UPDATE - a self-proclaimed "black-souled minion" has emailed Bitterwallet to tell us: "Birmingham, Woking and Tottenham Court Road megastores are currently undergoing a massive revamp, both the stores themselves and the ranges they carry as part of a trial. They are colloquially known as 'future stores' as it's believed they will be a look at the future of electronic retailing!"
