Big W is slashing prices to survive. The company recently announced plans to shut down 30 stores around the country, with the first outlets set to close their doors in the west of Sydney. Perhaps not unrelatedly, Big W is throwing a big online clearance sale with up to 95% off select products. Here are the links to the best deals!
First, the good news: Big W is not going out of business. At least, not yet. As 7News reports, the shutdown will only affect 30 of Big W's 182 stores with some of the axed outlets remaining open until 2021.
With that said, things aren't looking great for the brand. Indeed, its current fortunes are skating dangerously close to Dick Smith territory.
On the plus side, there are currently a bunch of killer deals available both online and in store as the chain desperately attempts to attract more customers. Here are the best deals you can get right now.
The Dick Smith of my childhood was a magical place. Gazing with wide eyes at the gadgets and gizmos around me, I was resigned to never owning them but found satisfaction in looking and dreaming. The store that I visited this week was a pit of despair and humiliation, as consumers picked the bones of the carcass and workers faced the end with resigned apathy.
(Note: The following deals link to either Big W's website or its official eBay store. You can also get most of them in store if that's the way you prefer to shop.)
