Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : October 22 2008
MB INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, October 23, 2008 55 Harvey Norman celebrations Advertising Feature Bargain hunters flock to Harvey Norman at Auburn. From humble origins THERE would be few people who watch television or read news- papers who would not be familiar with the cry ''Go Harvey, Go Harvey, Go Harvey Norman''. And, 26 years after opening his first store at Auburn, Gerry Harvey just keeps going, and go- ing. From that Auburn foundation he has built a brand well-known throughout the nation, and be- yond. The Harvey Norman store at Auburn, which employs more than 150 people, is celebrating its anniversary with a 26th birthday bash. And the Australian rugby league team will visit the store today (Thursday) during a broad- cast by radio station 2GB. As they prepare for the opening of the rugby league World Cup this weekend, the Kangaroos will meet their fans at the Auburn flagship store between 4pm and 5pm today. Gerry Harvey's story starts in 1961 when he and partner Ian Norman opened their first electri- cal store. By 1982, Norman Ross had grown to have 42 stores through- out NSW and Queensland. That year, Gerry and Ian sold Norman Ross and started Harvey Norman -- with just one store in Auburn. A major contributing factor to the success of the company is Gerry Harvey's retailing savvy. The Auburn store remains the ''home'' of Harvey Norman's busi- ness, offering a full range of computer and electrical products, furniture, bedding, bathrooms and floorcoverings -- and now the new office supply business as well.
