nope..didn't miss the point at all. Just added to it.

These big retailers have been doing thier best to hurt the smaller retailers for years and continue to do so.

You can bet they wouldn't give half a stuff about the $1000 threshhold if it was thier overseas online company you were buying it off, as David Jones demonstrates by opening up thier own and the G.M's statement of "if you can't beat them, join them"

GST is a pain in the arse, they don't care about GST, how much GST you pay or avoid, or where you get it from...as long as you get it from them!

Yep we'd all like to buy Australian, but we all have a budget and sometimes that budget rules out buying at home.

Harvey Norman is now setting up a website based in China to get around the Gst for goods under $1000.
Why sell in australia and pay all the gst. When u can ship from china and pay no tax for goods under $1000.
Harvey Norman will save millions as will the people that buy from him online from his new china website that is comming on line soon.

G'day Gents.

Buy goods of Harvey Norman HA! Harvey Norman outlets are some of the most expensive retail outlets regarding Manchester/Electrical and furniture goods that i know of.No wonder they're struggling with sales.I think
their motto is "skin thy neighbor" the minute you walk through their doors.
Tuna your dead right on the "Buy Australian" issue. These advertising television clowns,might be filling their own pockets by telling the general public to do the right thing and by Australian made goods,when the only thing Australian about the bought good,is the signature stamped on the price tag.To buy Australian today,i first have to find it,and that's not so easy a task when 99% of goods are foreign imports.Even when you do find a good that is Australian made,how can any one compete with the price of a similar foreign good.

Explorer stated that the crayfish waiting in transit to be offloaded from the ships in China are slowly dying and are being dumped of the side.That might be sad and true,but what people don't see,is the numerous small junk boats right underneath those ships with nets spread wide open waiting for a catch.
