History

Established in 1992.

"A long, long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away - well, London to be exact, as we couldn't find Tatooine - we had a firm belief that there was a second hand market for computers, gadgets and games. Increasing obsolescence was rapidly increasing the need to recycle.

We couldn't afford the most exotic kit or get rid of our old kit. What's a geek to do?

We wanted a retailer where one could pick up second hand oldies-but-still-goodies at knockdown prices. And we genuinely all cared about the environment - we're hippies, but dressed unhippyishly stupid so as to not admit it.

We also didn't want a store stuffing rubbish in our faces, a retailer that colluded with software houses and hardware manufacturers to hard flog what they couldn't shift. We would sell everything at the market price, if something doesn't sell, we reduce the price and if it sells too well, we increase the price. Simple market economics.

Today CeX operates in Australia, India, Ireland, Portugal, Spain, UK and USA."
