  1. I agree Andre. JB have a world beating cost of doing business (less than 15%). Furthermore, online competitors like Kogan and Amazon are now (as of July 1st) having to charge GST on all sales -they are no longer able to use offshore dispatch centres to dodge the tax.

  2. Roger,
    After recently purchasing a new TV from The Good Guys, JB should be very confident of continuing to beat Amazon. I couldn’t believe the price disparity for the same products. JB has been competing (and thriving) against EBay for years in the ancillary market and unless a dramatic change occurs with their modelling, Amazon will be the ‘Y2K’ of retailing in Australia.
