The Harvey Norman brand has been through many iterations since it first ventured into the Australian marketplace in 1961. The founders, Gerry Harvey and Ian Norman, met when they were working as door-to-door vacuum cleaner salesmen, and their first retail outlet sold mostly electrical goods and appliances.
These days, though, Harvey Norman retail outlets sell everything from electrical appliances, whitegoods and computers, to furniture, bedding and flooring. The stores are operated on a franchise basis, which means that each one is under separate management.
Benefits of Buying a Harvey Norman Product
Because of its sheer size, number of stores and enormous floor space, the Harvey Norman chain is able to offer a vast array of products. You can buy small items like USB sticks, computer games and DVDs, to whole housefuls of furniture, including big ticket items such as dining, lounge and bedroom suites and all computers, appliances and whitegoods. As with other major retail outlets, prices are somewhat negotiable at Harvey Norman stores. Just ask for a better deal and see what you are offered. It’s the old adage, if you don’t ask, you’ll never know. The business model is still largely commission-based, so their salespeople are highly motivated to do a deal. Harvey Norman has a "Shop with Confidence" outlook, so you can be sure that you will have access to the best range of quality goods at the most reasonable prices.
