The company confirmed yesterday it would be opening what it called an ‘‘Appliance ‘new & used’ Outlet’’ store.
Harvey Norman is advertising for a part-time worker but it did not say how many staff would work in the outlet store.
It would be different from a Harvey Norman retail store, which typically sold medium to premium range products.
Those stores did not have room to display all products, ‘‘especially catering for the cheaper entry price points across washing machines, fridges, TVs etc,’’ Harvey Norman proprietor Tristan Marris said.
He said the outlet store would complement the company’s existing Dunedin store but with ‘‘scratch and dent’’ type products and others that had been refurbished.
‘‘... great if you’re on a tight budget or a landlord looking to supply products to tenants,’’ Mr Marris said.
The store would have products on display and staff would be there to give advice to customers.
Mr Marris said the outlets were a part of Harvey Norman’s expansion strategy in New Zealand.
