Receiver hints at further WOW discounts in future

Receivers for Australia’s electronics retailer WOW Sight and Sound say goods may be further discounted in the future, in the wake of criticism from shoppers on Thursday.

Hundreds of bargain hunters lined up outside WOW stores ahead of opening time on Thursday morning hoping to snare a good deal, after advertisements spruiked discounts of up to 30 percent at the soon-to-close retailer.

However, many customers left empty-handed saying the level of discounting had been disappointingly low.
