$1m of cut-price Retravision stock up for auction

Three stores' contents to go on sale from Friday 3 August

8,000 TVs, ovens, dishwashers and other appliances from three Retravision stores in receivership will go on auction online from tomorrow.

Retravision Southern announced that it was being placed into administration in May, and the future of already-purchased stock has since been uncertain.

The company announced its liquidation on Monday, with all remaining assets to be sold to recover debts of more than $30million. Australian online auction site GraysOnline will handle the stock, with no reserves and minimum bids of $9 on all items.

The stock is estimated to be worth around $1million, and includes cameras, notebooks, mobile phones, printers, televisions, home theatre systems and other appliances.

Auctions start from Friday 3 August, with the entire sell-off process expected to take around two weeks with 100-150 items auctioned each day. The stock will be organised into categories, with similar products like TVs and DVD players expected to be offered up for auction in the one sale.

Around 35% of the items — likely smaller personal care items, notebooks, cameras and gadgets — will be offered with postage around Australia, while larger items will be pickup-only from the GraysOnline warehouse in Cheltenham, Victoria.

Communications manager for GraysOnline, Therese Tarlington, said in a media release that the stock would appeal to retailers as well as individual consumers: "This is an opportunity for trade buyers to secure some leading brands at discounted prices and since all the items are starting at $9; a chance for savvy home owners to upgrade their white goods, home entertainment or IT equipment."

Full details of the 14-day-long sell-off can be found at www.graysonline.com/retravision.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
