Phase one complete.
Harvey Norman is relaunching its Auburn store in Sydney’s western suburbs, measuring over 174,000 square feet – the largest Harvey Norman store in Australia – and is home to Australia’s first Games Hub. It is the first Harvey Norman store in Australia to be reimagined within the Flagship Store strategy. Phase two of the store (furniture and bedding) is due to be completed in June 2018.
The Harvey Norman Auburn Flagship experience is designed and built around interactivity with innovative layouts, prestige formats, exclusive offerings and immersive showroom experiences. Earlier this year Harvey Norman chairman, Gerry Harvey flagged that the retailer will continue to upgrade and enlarge existing stores rather than open additional shopfronts.
To celebrate the opening, the store will host events including in-store appearances, demonstrations, promotions, special pricing and more.
