"Gerry's complaining about price deflation with customers spending less on technology as companies like Kogan drive prices of TVs down," said Mr Kogan. "He should be more worried about improving his own business and streamlining it to take advantage of the high Australian dollar and improve value for customers."
He went on to assert that "Buying Clive Peeters was a huge mistake by Gerry Harvey. My mother always taught me that two wrongs don't make a right. Combining one ageing business model with another won't solve Gerry Harvey's problems. I'm happy to give him my mother's email address if he'd like some common sense business advice."
Kogan is launching a UK operation this month.
The company's basic business model is to import consumer electronics and other products directly from the manufacturers, and then sell online with low overheads and low prices.
