A major Australian retailer impacted by the mouse plague in Central West NSW and a flooded warehouse in Victoria has been forced to put $2 million worth of appliances and furniture up for sale.
The goods have been written off by the insurance company due to damage to boxes and packaging and are now on offer at Grays largest insurance claim online auction that ends at 8.15pm on 24 August.
Grays was unable to disclose the name of the retailer but based on the product mix, it is believed to be Harvey Norman.
There are a range of cooktops, ovens, dishwashers, refrigerators, washing machines, dryers, sinks, tapware, fans, portable air conditioners, TVs and more on offer starting from just $9.
Grays home sales manager, Jason Feltrin said the company has never had such a large offering of quality household goods in one online auction event in its entire history.
“The range of furniture, whitegoods, and appliances on offer from leading brands is amazing. Buyers can expect some significant discounts from recommended retail price for goods in perfect condition but with slightly damaged packaging.”
The appliances and furniture have been relocated to a former Bunnings site in Bonnyrigg for the auction with items taking up more than one-third of the store’s total footprint.
