Masters Plagued By More Problems As Its Final Sale Begins
Customers have slammed failed hardware store Masters for failing to deliver on their promised ‘fire sale’.
The home improvement chain, owned by Woolworths’ has been advertising its liquidation sale, saying it had between $600 to $700 million of hardware up for sale.
However, customers have been left disappointed with the discounted items as items were only reduced between 10 and 30 percent.
One customer told WAToday ‘’It's pretty rubbish. They are not going to sell much at these prices.'
A staff member told the Perth-based newspaper that whitegoods were actually on six-per-cent off, and most items were ten-per-cent off, with just a handful of articles being discounted by 30-per-cent.
The Master's website is listing the discounted items, with just 110 being listed in the Bayswater store in Perth, whereas, 200 are on offer in Chullora in Sydney.
In-store signage only shows ten-per-cent off power tools, while other stock is between ten and thirty-per-cent.
The Masters Facebook page has become the centre of complaints with customers saying 'If you're thinking about going to Masters FIRE CLOSING DOWN SALE !! Don't bother. Everything 10 to 30% off except pretty much after browsing the store for an hour I can tell you that everything is pretty much only 10% off,' one wrote.
'Not much of a sale considering that their poster says everything must go I doubt that everything will go with 10% off retail prices.
'Just save your money and wait until Boxing Day sale and go to Bunnings.'
Many have even said that Masters closing down prices are still more expensive than Bunnings.
The failed chain will close all its stores on December 11.
