SYDNEY: Retravision New South Wales member Little & Rabie Retravision officially opened its new premises today west of Sydney in South Penrith with a ceremony attended by federal MP Tony Abbott, local member for Lindsay, Jackie Kelly, and store owner George Rabie.

After a soft opening on 5 August, today’s official opening signaled a new chapter for the family business which began in 1973.

As anchor-tenant, Retravision will hope to draw customers to the multi-million dollar store located at the ABCOE Complex, which also features Second’s World Penrith next door.

Second’s World is not affiliated with 2nds World, who recently joined the Narta group

“Competition is healthy. Our key to success is an exceptionally high level of customer service and great product range,” store owner, George Rabie, told

Rabie said that the location and large range of products within the new premises will help differentiate the business from its nearby competitors.

Rabie commented that “positive growth, the ability to reach more customers and [being able to] expand our already very loyal customer base,” where considered vital factors to the new store’s success.

After the closure of the Little & Rabie store in St Marys on 23 July, the South Penrith premises will provide Rabie with a new opportunity.

“Our new store almost doubles the amount of floor space currently available, providing greater choice and convenience for local customers. We can now offer more items on display, which provides more room to touch and test the products,” said Rabie.

“Local residents can look forward to a more comfortable shopping experience, while taking advantage of the increased range of products, competitive prices and great customer service that they have come to expect.”
