With Covid lock-downs impacting local businesses across the country, one retail outlet has taken the bold step of trying something completely new. Ipswich Harvey Norman has come up with a bold – take no prisoners – approach to fighting off the downward trend in retail and has bravely decided to try having a sale this weekend. That’s right, for the first time ever Harvey Norman will be having a sale!
“I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous. It’s a big move. I ran it past head office and it took them a week to get back to me, that’s how unheard of this approach is. I’m sure they were just as unsure as I am. Who knows? If this works, we might try it every weekend,” said retail owner, Norm Harvey (52).
Understandably Norm has every right to feel nervous, it is never easy being the first person to try something new, but it’s innovators like him who end up changing the world and how we do things.
We wish Norm and the team the best of luck.
