Rent-to-own traces its roots to the 1960s, when the expense and unreliability of the old valve TV sets made renting commonplace. For more than 20 years now, we have redefined this concept as a service for modern customers.
The BrightHouse story began in April 1994, when we were set up by Thorn EMI as a sister company to Radio Rentals. Our first store opened in Chelmsley Wood in the West Midlands. We introduced the BrightHouse name in 2002. We opened our first store in Scotland, in East Kilbride, in 1996 and our first in Wales, in Cardiff, in 2003.
