https://www.nzherald.co.nz/business/retailer-smiths-city-set-to-be-sold-seven-stores-to-close/GFQW2OPWNCA4K235OOMAS7DA54/

 

So, almost 2 years on since Smiths City was sold, anyone know how they are doing now? I have 0 shops near me (nearest one is in Tauranga). Any Geekzoners live near a local one, and how are they doing post-lockdowns etc? Has their rebrand helped at all?

 

One positive thing is I found their website quite easy to navigate, but the range of products they sell (either Asus or Acer laptops, for example - pick your brand!) is quite limited in some areas.

Pretty decent brand refresh including store livery and the way they pitch their advertising (showing the use rather than showing the want)... (im in south island)

I agree, the refresh was long overdue. How are they doing customer/sales-wise though? That's the important thing.

They opened a store in Hastings awhile back. It was empty every time I went past it. After a few months it disappeared without a trace.
