Harvey Norman Sale Ends After 15 Years


THE long-running sale of furniture and electrical goods in superstore Harvey Norman is to come to an end next week, with everything returning to full price for the first time in 15 years.

Although the retail giants have threatened that the sale “must end soon”, many people we spoke to admitted that they never truly believed this day would ever come.

“I was going to buy a fridge, but I just kept putting it off,” said Cara Marron, 37. “I always said, sure the Harvey Norman sale is going to run forever, I can drop in anytime I want and get a fridge. Now it seems I’ve left it too late, and I have to pay full price”.

Staff at the 12 Harvey Norman stores nationwide have set about removing the ‘SALE’ branding from around the shop, a task that is expected to take up to 10 days.

“We had ‘SALE’ stuck to pretty much everything in the shop,” said one Drogheda branch member.

“I’ve been going around peeling off stickers for an hour, and it still looks like I haven’t started. It’s going to be weird here from now on, with everything back to normal price. You just get used to everything having 10% off, you know?”

Meanwhile, an appeal has gone out for the whereabouts of the newly-unemployed man who does the Harvey Norman radio ads, who recently bought a new house and has been missing since the news about the end of the sale broke.
