History
Henry Curry started building bicycles in the shed in his back garden in 1884. He opened a shop in 1888, selling bicycles. Slowly, more and more consumer eletrical goods were added to his stock, until the shop became mostly electrical goods. In 1932, H. Curry & Sons, as the company was known at that time, stopped manufacturing bicycles in 1932 but sold rebadged Hercules bicycles (rebadged as Currys) until the mid 1960s. Wikipedia has a very good article on Currys (click here).
