ADDICTED TO AUDIO TO OPEN STORE IN AUCKLAND
Addicted To Audio, Australia's fastest growing specialist retailer has announced today it is now opening a new store in the third quarter of this year in Auckland, New Zealand.
After decades in the IT industry and extensive experience in hardware and software distribution, Addicted to Audio's proprietor George Poutakidis had always enjoyed portable audio and in particular, desktop audio and headphones.
Starting the first Addicted To Audio store in Melbourne only a few short years ago, he undisputedly became Melbourne's leading Head-Fi specialist. The business has continued to evolve and now caters for traditional hi-fi as well, with retail outlets in most capital cities of Australia.
George Poutakidis told StereoNET:
With considerable growth within our business, we want to provide Auckland enthusiasts and consumers with the same experience that customers have enjoyed in our Australian Addicted To Audio stores.
We have found that there are no stores currently offering the level of service and experience to customers in New Zealand. We believe in understanding our customers and their needs, along with the next generation of Hi-Fi customers.
As we have many customers in New Zealand already, Addicted To Audio will be better placed to serve them starting with a physical retail outlet in Auckland.
