Dick Smith buy-out

Discussion in 'The Pub' started by hornet, Mar 15, 2016.

  1. It's very sad for the people who worked there, and many young people who got their start there, but Ruslan Kogan isn't a bricks-and-mortar businessman, so the physical shops are doomed.... At least the name will survive.
  2. Yay! We still get to buy their crap at overinflated prices while listening to whinge & moan about how the interweb is killing their business! Thanks to Dick & his mate Gerry Harvey for lobbying to lower the GST threshold so they can keep charging us top dollar for their imported crap!

    No relation to this thread & Dick Smith doesn't actually own 'Dick Smith'...but dropped it in anyway!
  3. So is Mr Kogan now going to feel disappointed and mildly ripped off with his purchase ;)?
  4. Like Gerry Harvey, Dick can never resist getting his mug on TV or in the papers. Personally I find him the most hypocritical knob-jockey in Australian business.
