I haven't purchased anything from HN for at least a year and will continue to boycott HN in hope that other will do the same.
Don't think I've ever bought anything from Harvey Norman, not with their stupid prices on furniture and office supplies.
I dont shop at harvey norman, COZ ITS CHEAPER ONLINE :D.. and I don't have to go to the shop, deal with sales people, go to another physical shop get a different quote, go back and barter.
If I was more of a
"bogan" (mrdamn 2012), i'd say that the reason I don't shop there is our amazing anti-carbon government has educated me on the importance of this and I realised that these shops promote carbon emission through:
- Use of electricity
- customers driving in
- transport of supplies
- construction of building
- waste through tangible marketing
- sales people's hot air
- higher prices cause more carbon emission (i.e. driving to other shops to re-price)
+ Delivery of goods from store to home if not entering store or bulky item (so triple dip here - deliver to warehouse, move to store, move to house)
+ they have online shops so wtf they complaining about?
Then multiply this by the amount of phsyical unrequired shops to service a small area.
Vs online shop
- Much less electricity requirements in comparison
- Reducing carbon by piggy-backing off the use of courier and international postal systems which will operate regardless :)
Jobs and economy seem irrelevant in this context as the government certainly don't give a fuck about it.
I would just not post this now that i'm done ranting, but then it would feel like a waste.last edited by Jerry at 18:25:57 01/Jun/12
