Dick Smith relaunches as online-only business

Kogan.com re-opens retailer for business

Dick Smith, the retailer that ceased trading on May 3 as a result of financial difficulty, has been relaunched in the A/NZ market as an online-only retailer.

Australian pure-play online retail website, Kogan.com, which acquired the Dick Smith online business in March 2016, has made live the dicksmith.com.au and dicksmith.com.nz website domains.

Kogan.com and Dick Smith executive director, David Shafer, said the relaunch is one month ahead of schedule and the all-new design is a fully responsive website for a great shopping experience on any device, and a platform that leverages the existing operations and logistics infrastructure of the Kogan.com business.

“The efficiency with which we have been able to relaunch Dick Smith is the same efficiency that will see us delivery product and price leadership into the future,” he said.

“We are extremely proud of the speed with which we were able to relaunch the Dick Smith online business, with a leading website, product range, and back-end systems to power the operation. All orders from today onwards come with the full backing of the Kogan.com business, and are supported by our Australian customer service team.”

According to Shafer, Dick Smith’s recent history has been disappointing for many Australians, but the company will work hard to restore the faith Australians have put in the Dick Smith brand for almost 50 years.

“Our digital efficiency will help to make the latest products more affordable at Dick Smith, and rebuild the legacy of the brand as a leading destination for the latest technology.

“It is early days and we are only just getting started. We are a customer focused business and we are here to serve our customers. We invite all Dick Smith customers to give us comments and suggestions to continually improve the new Dick Smith online store,” he mentioned.

Some of the new benefits of shopping with Dick Smith online include faster dispatch services, a returns policy that comes with comprehensive warranty backed by Kogan.com, a 14-day money back guarantee on exclusive brands, and an extended product range.

To celebrate the relaunch, the business is offering a relaunch sale on the online domains.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
