Latest round of Allans Billy Hyde clearout?

Post by packrat » 20 Jul 2018, 17:03

As they appear to have re-re-cratered, does anyone know if there there any stock clearance happening that people have heard of? This time seems much quieter (although Gibsons are appearing elsewhere!)

No idea, I drove past the Brisbane store about 1 month ago and it had a sign saying it was closed.

Unfortunately I am not surprised that they closed again, the Brisbane store was massive but had almost no stock (only really Gibson owned brands) and very unhelpful staff. My mate went in to buy a guitar strap and they didn't have any in stock.

I think online and the Melbourne store were still trading last month, but everything appears to have vanished now. I wonder what's happening with liquidation.

I was in the melb store 3 weeks ago and all the stock has been condensed into the front of the shop
It appears judging by this it wont be long before they disappearhttp://musicfeeds.com.au/news/allans-billy-hyde-staff-unpaid-wages-stores-close-receivership/#/slide/2
