Dixons to close all 34 PC City Spain stores

"Weak consumer environment" blamed by UK retail group

UK retail group Dixons has confirmed that it is to close all 34 PC City stores in Spain.

The equivalent to PC World in the UK, PC City sells console hardware and games software alongside a wider range of computer and electrical goods.

In a statement the company said that "after having considered its options for PC City Spain, it has today commenced procedures to exit from operations there.

"This decision has been made due to continuing weak consumer environment and continuing losses of the business, together with the Group's plans to focus on combined electrical and computing stores."

Head office and online operations will also close in the region. Around 1200 jobs will go as a result.
