The Dutch retail chains Dixons will continue as an online-only shop. This follows the bankruptcy last October of Bas Holding, the owner of the Dixons, iCentre and MyCom chains. The stores were transferred to Relevant Holdings, but it has decided not to continue to Dixons. Only a few of the around 30 Dixons shops will be rebranded to Phone House, iCentre or MyCom. Most of the staff should receive a new contract with the group.
