It is not surprising that Myers & DJ’s are in trouble because they have not kept up with online marketing & sales, they were great for good quality items & clothing but now my kdis are grown up I rarely shop with them. The closest stores I have nearby are hard to get to because of parking & access plus they are selective about what they post so I no longer shop with them. As for KMart & BigW their products are cheap & don’t last like they used to, they were my go to shop for clothing & household items years ago but not worth it now. I hate KMart’s store layout & after a few bad experiences with disabled access to their checkouts so I refuse to go there now, at least BigW has not made it difficult yet. The large shopping centres such as Stockland’s are too difficult for access for the elderly & disabled so I do a great deal of my shopping online, the only items hard to shop for online are shoes so I choose smaller shopping centres for those.
I won’t miss KMart if they disappear because I can get the same stuff from EBay or other online shopping & it is delivered to my home. The only sad side of stores closing is the jobs they provide for our teenagers because it is a perfect training environment to train them in customer service.
