Just checked at my local - no stock left in Brisbane
but a couple in Rocky if you are up that way. Good catch CMD!
I doubt DS is closing, just closing out slow-moving stock lines. Actually the chain was doing OK long after the Electronic Dick himself departed. UNTIL the Woolies bunch decided to make it bigger and better. Well, so far they haven't fixed it (not sure it was broken...), they've f#^@%!& it. They would have expected headwinds trying to move into turf dominated by JB, Hardly Normal etc. Cant see them giving up soon, although with new store fitouts, bigger footprints they must be miles underwater and may not know which way is up. A good test of senior management, and I think they'll persist but perhaps with changed division leadership. They blew up a working business model (Jaycar I'm sure are offering a thousand thanks) and so far have not got the replacement up to snuff. I occasionally get stuff there, I'd like them to survive.
