Orange IT Shuts Stores, JB Hi-Fi Bites

By Oonagh Reidy | Friday | 22/02/2013

Orange IT appears to have closed retail stores as competition from JB HiFi and big retailers bite


AS one retailer closes....
As one electronics retailer closes...The Orange IT store in North Sydney closed its doors several weeks ago just JB HiFi opened a new store a few doors away in Walker St earlier this month. 

Inside the North Sydney Store all stock has been cleared, although there is no closing sign on the door. It appears the price friendly electronics retailer is shutting all its stores in Sydney, including Clarence St and Haymarket in Sydney CDB, according to IT consumers on Whirlpool.

The company could not be contacted for comment and is not answering calls on the phone numbers listed on its website and Facebook page, and appears to have gone underground.

The company has an address listed as T9 and T15, Level 1, 730 George St Sydney.

Orange IT has not updated its Facebook page since November, even though customers are contacting them with complaints and queries about products purchased.



Another opens....Jb Hi-Fi North Sydney
Whirlpool user 'rickyt' wrote on January 25: "Word to the wise, we normally use Orange IT on Clarence St in Sydney to sort out our PC's in the office. Today they have advised that they cant deliver our order and they are closing... not sure if this is all stores but I suspect it is."

The company, which sells everything from HP notebooks to PC accessories like Logitech speakers, Toshiba storage devices and Targus laptop bags, appears to be still selling online, however.

Orange IT's eBay store is still alive and kicking and has listed products dated as recent as 20 February. They're even offering free delivery on most goods.

Orange IT customers include "corporates, small business, government, students" according to its website.

"I like Orange IT however recently they haven't had much in stock. It's sad if the whole chain closed down," another consumer wrote on the forum.

New LG 65   New LG 65" Ultra High Definition TV, Complete With Pop Down Speakers: REVIEW
LG Australia has finally rolled out their 65" Ultra High Definition TV offering in Australia and what you get is a TV that delivers a quantum leap in TV technology and surprisingly a significantly improved sound system that is delivered from pop down speakers but the big question is whether it is worth $6,999.
