“Michael’s is a well respected 40 year old business, and we see it as a privilege to continue Michael Wood’s legacy and have him remain a part of the Winning Appliances business”, adds Mr Winning.
Mr Winning asserts he’s excited to work with Michael’s team – a retailer known as the “go-to place” for 3000 of Melbourne’s most prominent designers, architects and builders.
