VICTORIA: The Good Guys store in Auburn, which is expected to take over the premises previously occupied by Retravision Auburn which went into administration last month, has changed ownership, while the store in Bathurst will be refurbished.
In Auburn, Greg Clarke has sold his share of The Good Guys store in the Auburn Home Mega Mall on Parramatta Road and Bret Quinn has taken over as “the caretaker JVP” at the store.
The ownership will remain this way “whilst the future development of the Auburn store is resolved,” according to a document sent to suppliers from The Good Guys general manager merchandise – consumer electronics, Graham Roberts, and The Good Guys general manager merchandise – home appliances, Wayne Jennings.
Interestingly, the Retravision store also in the Auburn Home Mega Mall entered administration last month, with rumours that it would be bought out by The Good Guys Auburn, which would extend its existing shopfront to include both showrooms.
Quinn was unavailable for comment today.
The Good Guys store in Bathurst, in western New South Wales, is the latest shopfront in the chain to receive an internal fitout, as part of an Australia-wide refresh of the brand.
Jed Rumbel’s Bathurst store on Stockland Drive will undergo renovations from Monday 25 June through to Monday 9 July, when stocking will commence.
The store will re-open on Wednesday 25 July.
Three other Good Guys stores will re-open over the next month after internal fit-outs, including locations at Townsville, Kawana Waters in Queensland and Albury in southern New South Wales.
