Upmarket department store David Jones has struck a novel arrangement with retailer Dick Smith to take over the day-to-day running of its struggling home electronics and entertainment category, freeing the department store owner from the sector which has dragged down in its performance in recent years. In an announcement made to the Australian Securities Exchange this morning, David Jones said it had entered into a retail brand management agreement with the private equity owned Dick Smith to operate its electronics offering from October 1. Products covered by the deal include televisions, computers, tablets, home office, audiovisual and other digital products. Whitegoods and small appliances will not be covered by the new relationship.

Furthermore, it proved to introduce users into larger projects and kits which would ensure return business for Dick Smith Electronics. It was a very successful business for this very reason. Thanks to a very generous OCAU member, who was happy to send items to me for the cost of postage, I have again become reacquainted with the Dick Smith Funway series of books. It was a very nostalgic moment, and I felt it was important to share this with you all as best as possible.

Peter Ryan, who has been working as an analyst in the retail sector for almost 40 years, said Dick Smith's announcement that he would shut down his food business was "no surprise". Mr Smith blamed German supermarket giant Aldi's "extreme capitalism" for the demise of his food business, as he announced it was closing in order to avoid bankruptcy. Aldi responded to the claim saying "… the recognition we have earned as Australia's most trusted brand is a result of our commitment to openness, honesty and integrity in all our dealings".
