Like a heap of other males, I just went and had a look at lunchtime. Haven't been in one before so was keen to have a nosey around.

Good sized store, good range of products. Seemed the odd product was priced really well ... but not much different IMO from your Harvey Norman, LV Martin, Dick Smith. Definitely a step up from the Warehouse but sort of had that feel to it ... just a flasher version.

Only slightly annoying part was that the sales staff were obviously told to chat as was asked 3 times by different staff what I did for a job ... stuff like that. And it was HOT in there too ... but I doubt any stores aircon could deal with the 100s of people in there though so I am sure that won't be a problem normally.

I love being able to choose from places so will compare them all for prices. So its a great addition for Wellington. I hope they do well.

kiwitrc: God havent been into that dump for 20 years

it's not that bad anymore, considering all it is is food and jb-hifi, with the odd side store that noone seems to go into.
