JB Hi-Fi Brunswick To Open ‘April’
JB Hi Fi is planning to open a store in North Melbourne Barkly Square Shopping Centre, a small shopping precinct located along Sydney Road, Brunswick.
The retailer is hoping to open the store towards “late April or early May at this stage”, Marketing Manager Scott Browning told Channel News.
It is also currently recruiting staff.
The store is just one of 15 new JB Hi-Fi stores that will open during FY13.
Last month, it opened a store in Sydney North Sydney, while another local CE retailer Orange IT shut up shop.
“Our new store rollout continues to generate a solid return on capital withmost of these stores located in shopping districts where JB Hi-Fi does not currently have a presence and thushaving minimal impact on our existing store network,” JB Hi-Fi CEO, Terry Smart, said last month.
It will be the 51st JB store to open in its home state of Victoria.
