ersonally it wouldn't matter who they enlist in my opinion. I still wouldn't shop there.

I would have thought that his "Mad...." IP would have been sold when he sold out the butchery business. Seems negligent of the buyers to not see this coming.

MikeB4: If they have what I want at the price I like I will shop there.


Maybe the answer is to combine bottom end electronics and bottom end butchers.

"Morning. Can I have a hard drive and a kilo of beef mince please?"

A bit like a French hypermarket where you could buy a car, golf clubs, a bbq, get an eye test or new glasses and do the weekly shop all in one shop!

He's a great man Peter Leitch.  Perhaps they're trying to leverage his reputation to appeal more to the lay person?

You haven't seen Dick Smith's Australian advertising.  There's more dick ... smith jokes than you can shake a stick at.

Worst NZ advertising pun I have ever seen - probably worst in the world - was from a van belonging to a well known national company that sells booze.

"Liquor. She'll love it!"

Typically the only thing Mad I see about Dicky's deals is that they expect people to pay so much for such rubbish.
