blog Well, well, well. Looks like Harvey Norman founder Gerry Harvey has admitted that it’s time to come down off his high horse and admit that the internet has some legs when it comes to retailing. Writes the Herald Sun:
“By this time next year you’ll see Harvey Norman with a pretty sizeable internet presence. My heart’s beating very strongly on whether we make any money out of it,” Mr Harvey said. “I haven’t got any choice. I’ve got to cannibalise our stores.”
It will be interesting to see how well Harvey Norman’s online store stacks up against existing favourites like AusPCMarket, UMart and of course MSY. And we look forward to seeing Harvey Norman listed in staticICE.
